Tech CU Named Third Top Performing Credit Union in the U.S. by S&P Global Market Intelligence for the Second Year in a Row 

Tech CU Claims no. 1 spot in California, Grows Membership 16.2 Percent  

San Jose – March 20, 2019 — Tech CU (Technology Credit Union) announced today it was named the third best-performing credit union among 552 credit unions in the U.S. by S&P Global Market Intelligence, a leader in multi-asset class research data and insight. This is the second year in a row the credit union received this ranking and Tech CU is the only one of the top 3 from last year to make the top 3 list this year. The credit union also maintained its no. 1 ranking 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.

“We’re thrilled to be ranked no. 3 for the second year in a row,” said Todd Harris, CEO of Tech CU. “This is a testament to our team’s hard work, ability to execute and strategic decisions we’ve made over the past few years. I want to congratulate everyone at Tech CU for 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, 2018. Based on these criteria, 552 credit unions qualified for ranking. Data was compiled as of March 20, 2019.
