CLA Named the Top Audit Firm for Credit Unions Seven Years in a Row
CLA (CliftonLarsonAllen LLP) was named the top audit firm for credit unions for the seventh straight year in the 2020 Supplier Market Share Guide: Credit Union Auditors, published by Callahan & Associates.
CLA continues to outpace all auditors on the list in terms of the raw number of credit unions with over $40 million in assets that the firm serves. Over the past year, the average asset size of the credit union clients served by the firm stands at $1.2 billion, up from $1.1 billion last year.
Aman Johal, industry analyst at Callahan & Associates, states that the 2020 Market Share Guide is “designed to help credit unions select a CPA firm that understands the specific needs and values of a cooperative institution in a modern financial landscape.” In addition to the annual rankings, the guide discusses trends that impacted credit unions over the past year.
