BREA, Calif., April 8, 2024 /Standard Newswire/ -- AdelFi was recently named in S&P Global Market Intelligence's annual list of top performing credit unions in 2023, placing the Christian financial institution No. 23 on the list. This recognition highlights AdelFi's commitment to being a good steward of God's resources, as well as its exceptional performance across key financial metrics.

S&P Global Market Intelligence's annual ranking evaluates credit unions based on five critical measures: member growth, shares and deposits per member, net worth as a percentage of total assets, total delinquent loans to total loans and return on average assets. AdelFi's exemplary performance in these areas has secured its position among the nation's top financial institutions.

"We are humbled to be recognized by S&P Global Market Intelligence as one of the top-performing financial institutions in the country," said Abel Pomar, President and CEO of AdelFi. "This achievement underscores our dedication to serving our members and advancing the Kingdom of God, while maintaining strong financial performance."

AdelFi's success can be attributed to its unwavering focus on member satisfaction, prudent financial management, and innovative solutions tailored to meet the evolving needs of its Christian members. By prioritizing excellence in service delivery and financial stewardship, AdelFi has emerged as the nation's leading Christian financial institution.

"We are immensely proud of our team's hard work and dedication, which have been instrumental in achieving this prestigious recognition," added Pomar. "As we celebrate this milestone, we remain committed to upholding the highest standards of service, integrity, and financial stability for our members."

Inclusion in S&P Global Market Intelligence's top-100 rankings is a testament to AdelFi's position as a trusted financial partner and a pillar of strength with its members comprised of Christian individuals, families, businesses, and organizations serving throughout the U.S. and in 130 countries across the globe.
