BauerFinancial, Inc., the Nation’s Premier Credit Union and Bank Rating Firm, proudly announces that Compass Community Credit Union has once again been awarded its highest (5-Star) rating for financial strength and stability. Earning a 5-star rating indicates Compass Community Credit Union excels in areas of capital adequacy, profitability, asset quality and much more.

Earning and maintaining this top rating for 43 consecutive quarters gives the added title of “Exceptional Performance Credit Union”, a status reserved for financial institutions that have earned Bauer’s highest rating consistently for at least 10 consecutive years. Compass Community Credit Union has triumphed over everything that has been thrown its way over the past decade.

“This rating is impressive in the best of times,” notes Karen Dorway, president of the research firm. “But I can’t overstate the strength and prudence that Compass Community Credit Union has exhibited over the past years that got it to this point.
