THE INSTITUTION'S SCORE
When it comes to measuring a credit union's financial strength, capital is important. It acts as a buffer against losses and provides protection for members when a credit union is experiencing financial trouble. When it comes to safety and soundness, the higher the capital, the better.
On our test to measure capital adequacy, MATERION scored 22 out of a possible 30 points, beating the national average of 15.65.
MATERION had a capitalization ratio of 22.00 percent in our test, higher than the average for all credit unions, suggesting that it's on more solid financial footing than its peers.
