Gulf Winds Federal Credit Union, Pensacola, announces it is once again a top performer, earning a coveted 5-Star rating from BauerFinancial, the Nation’s Premier Bank and Credit Union Rating Firm. (A five-star rating indicates that this credit union excels in areas of capital adequacy, profitability, asset quality and much more.) Gulf Winds Federal Credit Union has earned and maintained this top rating for 91 consecutive quarters. Gulf Winds Federal Credit Union is a “Sustained Superiority” credit union for maintaining a 5-Star rating longer than 90 percent of the industry.

“Gulf Winds Federal Credit Union is a prime example of a credit union excelling at what it was created to do,” explains Karen L. Dorway, president of BauerFinancial. “Its common bond and mutual ownership give its employees and members the same personal investment in the credit union. It makes decisions locally, often for neighbors and friends; and it focuses on quality as opposed to quantity. That focus has paid off for both Gulf Winds Federal Credit Union and its membership.”
