GWFCU receives 5-Star rating

Gulf Winds Federal Credit Union, Pensacola, reports it has once again earned a coveted 5-Star rating from BauerFinancial, the nation’s premier bank and credit union rating firm.

A five-star rating indicates the credit union excels in areas of capital adequacy, profitability, asset quality and much more.

Earning and maintaining this top 5-Star rating for 92 consecutive quarters puts Gulf Winds Federal Credit Union in an even more prominent position as a “Sustained Superiority Credit Union.” This designation is reserved for the Top 10%, institutions that have maintained Bauer’s highest rating longer than 90 percent of the industry.

“Gulf Winds Federal Credit Union is an integral part of its members’ lives,” said Karen L. Dorway, president of BauerFinancial. “Its support provides the vitality needed for its field of membership to remain socially, educationally and commercially vibrant. A strong membership, in turn, produces a strong credit union. And the cycle continues. Credit unions understand that what is good for their members is equally good for them, making them invaluable partners.”
