Few directors are financial experts, yet directors are expected to monitor and understand the financial condition of an institution with millions (or even billions) of somebody else’s money. Directors don’t need to become financial experts, but should know enough to recognize whether the credit union is strong and stable, or weak and troubled, before anyone else tells them.
This session will help every director understand the key numbers and ratios to monitor the credit union’s financial success. It will address capital (the critical measure of stability), explain why it is vital, where it comes from, and how much you need. The essential formula of profitability and a breakdown of the five profitability components will be covered.
Finally, this program will look at how varied business models result in ratios that may be very different from the peers or averages that are so commonly used. You will better understand how to monitor whether your credit union is on track, improving, or weakening.
