Asset Quality Score
In this test, Bankrate tries to estimate the impact of troubled assets, such as unpaid mortgages, on the credit union's reserves set aside to cover loan losses, as well as overall capitalization.
A credit union with large numbers of these types of assets could eventually be forced to use capital to absorb losses, reducing its equity cushion. Many of those assets are also likely to be in non-accrual status and no longer earning interest for the credit union, resulting in reduced earnings and potentially more risk of a future failure.
On Bankrate's asset quality test, OPC scored 40 out of a possible 40 points, exceeding the national average of 38.09 points.
