Gulf Winds Federal Credit Union is proud to announce it has earned BauerFinancial’s five-star superior rating for strength and security.

A five-star superior rating indicates that Gulf Winds is one of the strongest in the nation, excelling in areas of capital, loan quality, profitability and more. Gulf Winds has earned this highest rating for 87 consecutive quarters, which secures it an even more elite status as a “Sustained Superiority Credit Union.” This designation is only available to the top 10 percent of institutions, including only those that have maintained their five-star rating for longer than 90 percent of the industry.

“As market conditions continue to change, financial institutions must be adept enough to evolve with them. With a stellar financial condition and track record, we have no doubt in its ability to do so. Gulf Winds members are privileged to have such a strong financial partner in their midst,” said Karen L. Dorway, president of BauerFinancial.
