Redwood Credit Union (RCU) has recently been ranked the 2nd healthiest credit union in the United States (out of approximately 5,600 credit unions), according to Glatt Consulting’s Credit Union HealthScore, which measures credit union strength and growth.
Glatt Consulting, an independent firm that studies the financial health of credit unions, uses 17 performance metrics to calculate its Credit Union HealthScore, including financial and operational strength and growth, asset quality, asset/liability management, and productivity. RCU is the only credit union to have been ranked in the top five in each of the last four years.
“Financial strength and stability is key for any financial institution, and as a credit union, our continued strength and growth allows us to return even greater value to our Members and community, and further help them succeed,” says Brett Martinez, President & CEO.
Redwood experienced strong growth in 2017, reaching more than $4 billion in assets and over 300,000 Members. In addition to traditional banking services such as checking, savings and loans, Redwood Credit Union also offers a wide variety of expanded products and services such as wealth management and financial planning, insurance, Small Business Administration (SBA) loans, and auto sales, which puts the Credit Union’s total assets under management at nearly $6 billion. RCU is currently the 42nd largest credit union in asset size in the U.S., and 10th largest in California.
