Tech CU Named Third Top Performing Credit Union in the U.S. by S&P Global Market Intelligence

Tech CU Advances 49 Spots in One Year and Claims no. 1 spot in California

San Jose – April 3, 2018 — Tech CU (Technology Credit Union) announced today it was named the number 3 best-performing credit union among 538 credit unions in the U.S. by S&P Global Market Intelligence, a leader in multi-asset class research data and insight. This is a significant increase from last year’s list, where Tech CU was ranked 52 nationwide. The credit union was also ranked no. 1 in California. The report ranks the nation's credit unions using five core financial performance metrics: member growth, market growth, operating expense as a percentage of operating revenue, net charge-offs as a percentage of average loans and delinquent loans as a percentage of total loans.

“This recognition is a testament to our team’s hard work and strategic decisions made over the past several years,” said Todd Harris, CEO of Tech CU. "2017 was one of the most successful, if not the most productive year in our credit union’s history. Assets ended the year at nearly $2.5 billion, while our membership grew year-over-year by more than 15,000. I want to congratulate the team on a job well done.”

To determine who is included on the list, each company’s standard deviation from the industry mean is calculated for the five-ranking metrics, equally weighted, and then added together to calculate a performance score. To help normalize the data and mitigate the impact of outliers, caps and floors were applied to each metric. To be eligible for the ranking, a credit union had to report more than $500 million in total assets and a net worth ratio of at least seven percent as of December 31, 2017. Based on these criteria, 538 credit unions qualified for ranking. Data was compiled as of March 13, 2018.
