History of Animas Credit Union


Animas Credit Union was chartered in 1956 and over the past 5 years had a membership base between 13,000 and 14,000. While its number of members had been declining steadily, it started to increase in 2021 ahead of the planned merger with Sandia Laboratory.


Animas Credit Union also had fairly stable balance sheet metrics, with no real growth in its lending over the last 5 years but increasing assets and deposits in more recent years. When we consider the credit union’s net worth progression (which as we’ve discussed previously is probably the most important measure) the story is very similar.


Animas Credit Union’s net worth at the time of the merger was $16 million, which results in a net worth per member of $1,193. This is significantly below the national average of credit unions of $1,633. The credit union could therefore benefit from being a part of a large much more successful credit union.
