Nine California CUs Make Top Annual Financial Performance List

Nine credit unions in California above $100 million in assets made S&P Global Market Intelligence’s annual top-100 Bank and Credit Union National Rankings list that was published this week by the industry analysis firm.

AdelFi CU (No. 9), Chevron FCU (No. 30), SFI FCU (No. 40), California Lithuanian CU (No. 72), Redwood CU (No. 80), Families and Schools Together FCU (No. 84), Long Beach Firemen’s CU (No. 85), Glendale Area Schools CU (No. 89), and Self-Help FCU (No. 99) were included on this top list for last year (financials ending Dec. 31, 2022). The top-100 list of U.S. credit unions can be found here.

Scores were calculated based on five metrics: member growth, total number of loans per member, net worth as a percentage of total assets, delinquent loans as a percentage of total loans, and return on average assets (ROA).
