Redwood Credit Union ranks 4th in nation

Financial strength and growth metrics highlight RCU as a top performer

SANTA ROSA, CA (April 16, 2019) — Redwood Credit Union (RCU) has recently been ranked the 4th healthiest credit union in the United States (out of approximately 5,400 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 five years.

“Financial strength and stability are key factors for any financial institution. As a credit union, our continued strength and growth allow us to return even greater value to our Members and community, and further help them succeed,” says Brett Martinez, President & CEO.

RCU experienced strong growth in 2018, reaching more than $4.5 billion in assets and over 335,000 Members. In addition to traditional banking services such as checking, savings, and loans, Redwood Credit Union also offers wealth management and financial planning services, insurance, Small Business Administration (SBA) loans, and auto sales. RCU is currently the 42nd largest credit union in asset size in the United States, and 8th largest in California.
