OUCU Achieves Exceptional Performance Designation

Bauer Financial 5-Star Rating

BauerFinancial, Inc., the nation’s premier bank and credit union rating firm, announced that OUCU, has once again earned its highest (5-Star) rating for financial strength and stability. Earning a 5-Star rating indicates OUCU excels in areas of capital adequacy, profitability, asset quality and much more. Earning and maintaining this top rating for 47 consecutive quarters, means OUCU has done so continuously since August 2008. This achievement has secured an even higher designation for OUCU as an “Exceptional Performance Credit Union”. This title is reserved for institutions that have earned Bauer’s top 5-Star rating for 40 consecutive quarters (ten years) or longer. 

OUCU is the only credit union in the area to be awarded a 5-Star rating.

“Embracing their ‘People Helping People’ core value,” notes Karen Dorway, president of BauerFinancial, “the nation’s credit unions are well-positioned to help local communities thrive. In fact,” she continued, “credit unions are local small businesses themselves, and their employees are members. Through shared experiences, they know exactly what other members need, and they have the means to help provide it. This has proven a winning combination for OUCU.”
