Despite myriad indications that net interest income, balance sheet spread, net economic value, and net worth have improved meaningfully, the NCUA’s NEV Supervisory Test results suggest widespread elevated levels of risk across the industry and a growing list of credit unions moving toward “Extreme Risk.”
