THE INSTITUTION'S SCORE
Capital works as a cushion against losses and as protection for members when a credit union is experiencing economic trouble. Therefore, a credit union's level of capital is an essential measurement of its financial strength. From a safety and soundness perspective, the more capital, the better.
On our test to measure capital adequacy, GENERAL ELECTRIC received a score of 10 out of a possible 30 points, below the national average of 15.65.
GENERAL ELECTRIC appears to be weaker than its peers in this area, with a capitalization ratio of 10.00 percent in our test, less than the average for all credit unions.
