Lafayette Federal Credit Union has received an elite 5-star rating from Bauer Financial, one of the nation’s premier bank and credit union rating firms. The top ranking classifies the financially sound credit union as a "superior” financial institution for 2022.
Bauer Financial reviews financial data compiled from call reports as reported to federal regulators, and uses a rigid barometer of multiple criteria to assess each financial institution, including capital ratios, profitability/loss trends, community reinvestment ratings (CRAs), historical data, and liquidity.
As an independent organization, Bauer Financial does not get paid to rate any institution, nor can any institution opt out of the rating system. This unbiased approach has earned the respect of regulators, bankers and consumers across the country. As such, the firm has been able to offer a reliable grading system for almost 40 years.
"It’s truly an honor to earn the maximum score from one of the nation’s leading financial ranking firms,” says Gladys Magsino, Lafayette FCU’s Senior Vice President of Administration. "To receive a top ranking is a tribute to the remarkable achievements of our ever-growing credit union. Over the past year, our hard work has been recognized by several industry-leading organizations, including S&P Global (Top 100 Credit Unions) and Newsweek’s (America’s Best Banks). The unwavering support of our members has undoubtedly made this all possible. As their credit union for life, we are committed to working hard every day to continue to gain their trust and provide the best possible service and experience.”
As we continue to strengthen our organization, we look forward to growing our relationships with each of our members. Our success will allow us to continue to innovate and invest in the latest technology to meet ever-changing banking needs. We are very excited about these initiatives and look forward to helping meet the financial goals of those we serve.
We thank our valued members for their continued support and for choosing Lafayette Federal as their trusted financial partner.
