  • I have heard that if we look at the smallest 100 credit unioins that their ROA is much higher than either the top 100 and certainly the average. It would be interesting to see if that is true.

  • Good information ... thought provoking ... provides data for comparative analysis.

  • I would take exception to the statement that the Top 100 are the driving force in the movement. While Justice FCU is not there, we often are leaps ahead in terms of innovation and complexity than some of these Top 100. Many others might feel the same.

  • Good information. It took me a few minutes to really see the impact of the information.

  • Is there a way to report ROA before and after interest refunds. I know many CU's give refunds back and for us this refund lowers our ROA. On the December Call Report there is a separate line for any interest refunds. Thank You.

  • Actually, of the smallest 100 credit unions by asset size, 35 have a negative ROA and the collective ROA of the group is 0.06%. Callahan's often segments the credit union industry into nine peer groups based on asset size, and without fail the ROAs of those groups follow the size of the group accordingly with the smallest group, credit unions under $2 million in assets, having the lowest ROA of 0.26% and about 30% of the 1,800 credit unions in that group actually having a negative ROA.

  • Using the old 80/20 rule, I wonder if 20% of the CU's hold 80% of the assets, members, loans, etc. Using the 10,000 CU's approximately, would the top 200 have 80%?

  • Not sure it means anything much but it is worth pondering.

  • Specifically, I would like to see detailed Financial Performance Ratios for the top 100. Also, what other things are they doing to make them high performers. The article is good, but would be better if we could see congruencies in their business models that we might be able to emulate.
