Search for Safe Financial Institutions

The Safe & Sound ratings system employs several tests to measure the capital adequacy, asset quality and profitability of each rated financial institution. Individual performance levels are determined from publicly available regulatory filings and are compared to industry standards and key absolute benchmarks. Combined results form the basis for our star ratings. Learn about our scoring methodology.

Scoring methodology evaluates the financial condition of institutions and assigns a one- to five-star rating for each with five stars representing the highest rating. Institutions with satisfactory performance will generally receive a rating of three or more stars. The majority of institutions fall into the three- to four-star range. An institution with an "NR" rating may be too new to rate or may have limited the publicly available information in their regulatory filings. The "NR" is not an indication of financial strength or weakness. The Safe & Sound rating is believed to be reliable, but the information is not guaranteed. In addition, events since the information was collected may have altered the institution's financial condition.
