2022 Annual Report from Elements Financial

A Letter from Our Leadership

Since 1930, our credit union has met the financial needs of our members. Already in 2023, we’ve experienced a changing economic environment which has impacted everyone. As we look back on 2022, we are here to reaffirm our commitment to financial wellness education, our solid financial position, and our signature service.

We continue to focus on and perform strongly in these areas:

• Financial Wellness. Elements proudly serves more than 100,000 members and oversees $2.2 billion in assets that they’ve entrusted to us. Our purpose is to empower them to achieve financial success

• Safety & Soundness. We maintain capital levels significantly beyond the requirements for a well-capitalized rating from our regulators. Elements also maintains a focus on managing risk. With diversified deposits, Elements maintains robust cash reserves, borrowing capacity, and investments.

• A Time-Tested History of Service. Since our founding in 1930 during the Great Depression, our business has been built with a responsible approach, focusing on the core elements of financial services. We have sustained success through a variety of economic and interest rate environments, and we look forward to serving our members long into the future.

Important to our mission-driven work, we believe in our communities and partner with a range of organizations that serve our neighbors in need. We also advocate through both state and national organizations to ensure your credit union benefits are supported through legislation.

Together with members and the community, Elements grows forward!

Thank you for your loyal business,

MarkSaltsgver WhitneyAnderson
