Treasurer’s Report

As of December 31, 2021, the Credit Union Total Assets are $265.0 million, which represents a 74.8% increase in comparison to year-end 2020, due to the merger of Allegent Community Federal Credit Union with Riverset Credit Union as of January 31, 2021.

The merger also resulted in an increase in Total Loans of 45.7%, for a portfolio balance of $144.6 million as of December 31, 2021, while Total Shares increased by 67.2% to a year-end total of $221.5 million as of December 31, 2021.

Total Loan Interest Income was $6.2 million for the year end December 31, 2021, an increase of 66.8% when compared to 2020, while overall Operating Income totaled $9.2 million, an increase of 102.3% when compared to the year ended December 31, 2020.

Our Total Dividend payout for the year ended December 31, 2021 was approximately $358,000, which was 47.4% lower than in 2020, due to the continued historically low-interest rate environment, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Non-interest Expenses increased 93.0% in 2021 when compared to 2020, to a total of $7.6 million, due to the merger and several one-time expenses associated with the acquisition. Our Provision for Loan Losses Expense was increased to approximately $193,000, an increase of 98.2% when compared to 2020, due to the increased loan portfolio subsequent to the merger.

Although 2021 was a very challenging year for earnings across the entire spectrum of the financial services industry, the Credit Union was able to post Net Income of $1.5 million for the year ended December 31, 2021, while maintaining a strong Capital Ratio of 16.30%. The NCUA categorizes the credit union as “Well Capitalized”.

As a result of the merger, our membership increased to 21,511 members as of December 31, 2021, which was an increase of almost 50% when compared to December 31, 2020.

The success of the merger, as well as the increased membership base, our strong asset quality, and solid earnings are all a testament to Allegent’s continued success.

At Allegent Community Federal Credit Union, we will always adhere to the credit union mission and remain committed to serving you, our loyal members.

Robert Elias, Treasurer

Supervisory Committee Report

The Credit union falls under the federal jurisdiction of the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA). NCUA regulations permit supervisory committees of federally chartered credit unions of Allegent’s asset size to fulfill their annual audit responsibility via a choice of various alternatives. These alternatives include obtaining an independent audit in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) or performing procedures in accordance with the NCUA’s Supervisory Committee Guide. 

For the fiscal year ended December 31, 2021, the Supervisory Committee engaged S.R. Snodgrass, P.C. to perform an opinion audit in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). The credit union also employs an Internal Auditor, Kimberly R. Golla, CPA to schedule and complete a comprehensive series of audits of internal controls throughout the fiscal year.

For fiscal year end December 31, 2021, the Supervisory Committee has chosen to direct and supervise the audit function in the same manner as year-end 2020.

The credit union, which is federally chartered, is also subject to periodic examinations by the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA). 

Based on the results of the credit union’s internal audit reports, the GAAP opinion audit report from S.R. Snodgrass, P.C. and the NCUA Examination Report, it is the opinion of the Supervisory Committee that Allegent Community Federal Credit Union continues to be financially strong with adequate internal controls and an effective compliance program.
