Watford City, NN — Dakota West Credit Union, with $299 million in assets, was recently ranked by S&P Global Market Intelligence as one of the top 100 financially stable credit unions in the country for 2021. The North Dakota financial institution was measured against 1,765 credit unions above $100 million in assets using five metrics: member growth, average loans per member, net worth as a percentage of total assets, delinquent loans as a percentage of total loans, and return on average assets.
"We are extremely honored to be ranked as one of the top credit unions in the country for financial stability and growth," said CEO Jeff Meyer. "Being recognized by a well-known organization such as S&P gives me confidence that we've have been honoring our purpose, our members and our staff.”
Dakota West Credit Union was the only credit union in North Dakota to make this Top 100 list.
