Asset Quality Score
Bankrate uses this test to determine the effect of problem assets, such as unpaid loans, on the credit union's reserves set aside to cover loan losses, as well as overall capitalization.
A credit union with a large number of these kinds of assets could eventually be forced to use capital to cover losses, cutting down on its equity buffer. It also means that there are likely to be many assets that are in non-accrual status and thus aren't earning interest for the credit union, decreasing earnings and increasing the chances of a future failure.
On Bankrate's test of asset quality, ASSOCIATED HEALTHCARE scored 40 out of a possible 40 points, above the national average of 38.09 points.
A below-average ratio of troubled assets of 0.00 percent in our test was potentially indicative of superior financial strength compared to other credit unions.
