Overview of the Credit Union’s Performance Metrics
In the above chart we have displayed three statistics that are important in evaluating a credit union’s performance and shown how Wftfcu compares on these metrics, in addition to detailing how the credit union performed on each metric in the prior year. Beginning with Wftfcu’s return on assets (aka ROA), on this statistic the credit union performs above the average comparable credit union. When we look at the year over year trends, we can see that ROA has been relatively stable given the 0.03% change. A credit union’s ROA is a good way of assessing how well the entity is using its assets to generate returns. Moving on to the credit union’s delinquency rate, which tells us how much of a credit union’s loan book is delinquent, the credit union is well above its peer group on this metric and compared with the prior year it has deteriorated. Keep in mind that a higher delinquency rate indicates a lower performing loan book so a declining rate is a favorable trend. Finally, the net worth ratio for the credit union is 11.8% which is well above its peer group average of 10.2%. This metric has declined on a year over year basis and stood at 12.2% a year ago. Based on the NCUA guidelines, the credit union is considered to be well capitalized.
Ultimately, after considering all of the relevant factors we rate Wftfcu 3.4 out of 5.0, which is very good.
