WASHINGTON — No credit union is too small or too large to develop comprehensive risk mitigation strategies, NCUA Vice Chairman Rodney Hood told attendees at NAFCU's Congressional Caucus today.

He said that the agency's examiners have been instructed to evaluate not only how well credit unions have managed risk in the past but how well they have put in safeguards for the future.
