    • Gateway records phenomenal growth in 2017

      Originally posted on Jamaica Observer- see original article Jamaica Co-operative Credit Union League is the umbrella organisation of credit unions in Jamaica. “For loans, at the start of January 2017, we had $3.82 billion. But by the end of the year we had grown to $4.12 billion in loans. Whilst the movement grew by 12 .6 per cent in terms of loan, Gateway showed 25.6 per cent, twice the average of the movement – and for that we would like to thank you (members),” Johnson said. Speaking at the 2018 annual general meeting of the Gateway Co-operative Credit Union Ltd, held last week at the Seventh-day Conference Centre in Mount Salem, St James, Johnson emphasised Gateway's savings for 2017, which also surpassed that of the national movement. “At the start of January 2017 we had $4.88 billion in savings and by the end of December 2017 we had $5.4 billion. This is a 13 per cent growth and when you compare it to what happens in the movement,; they are growing by 9.8 per cent,” Johnson stated. He added: “In total assets we had moved from $6.1 billion to $7 billion. Now, while the movement grew by 8.8 per cent, Gateway grew by all of 16 per cent. So what I want you to know is Gateway, your credit union is solid like a rock.” He noted that through the hard work of the management staff, Gateway, which has branches in Montego Bay, St James, and Lucea, Hanover, “was able to put out a healthy surplus of $133 million” at the end of 2017. Meanwhile, the president announced that members of Gateway will benefit from plans by the Jamaica Co-operative Credit Union League to undertake a connectivity project which will allow members to access service at any credit union institution across the island. “As a part of a movement, because you know there are about 27 other credit unions in the movement there is a connectivity project which is being put in place. That means, let's say you are in Kingston and you need funds, you don't have to bother your head as to what you are going to do, you can go to any credit union branch and do your business just as you are doing it at Gateway,” Johnson said. He also told the Gateway members of plans to set up an e-banking hall. “We want your journey with us, as members, to be easy so we want in the future to set up an e-banking hall – that is, you can come in, and in air-conditioned comfort and lovely surroundings you can do your business. We also want to make sure that when you come to our branches the speed of doing business will be second to none. That is where the membership is going,” he said. During the meeting, members of the executive were returned en bloc. Horace Hines

    • Prime Minister Says Credit Union is Now a Formidable Force

      Originally posted on Jamaica Information Service- see article here Prime Minister, the Most Hon. Andrew Holness, says the credit union movement has become such a formidable force that it is now ranked as the largest membership organisation in the country. Mr. Holness, who was speaking at the media launch of Gateway Co-operative Credit Union (2017) Limited at the Montego Bay Cultural Centre on June 7, added that with the movement comprising one million members, it also rivals the number of depositors and accounts in commercial banks. “With $73 billion in savings, $64 billion in loans and $95 billion in assets, it is clear that credit unions are a powerful institution in Jamaica and have been meeting a clear demand,” Mr. Holness noted. The Prime Minister said the guiding structure of credit unions enables these institutions to develop financial products that are tailored to their members. “They also play a significant role in supporting education, training, housing, micro and small enterprises, and generally supporting the economic development of Jamaica,” he said. Mr. Holness further noted that credit unions, at their core, are focused on communities and play a key role in fostering greater access to financial services. “Gateway Co-Operative Credit Union services will reflect the demands of its members, particularly those from St. James and Hanover. I also see where they have drawn from Trelawny and St. Elizabeth with members,” he said. Gateway Co-operative Credit Union Limited was formed through a merger of the Montego and Hanover Co-operative Credit Unions on January 3, 2017. As a single entity, Gateway is now the fourth largest credit union in Jamaica, boasting membership of approximately 70,000 and total assets of $6.1 billion. The Prime Minister pointed out that the Government is firmly committed to financial inclusion and that credit unions, with their great penetration, play a critical role in achieving this and also “driving our growth agenda”. “Jamaica’s connection to the co-operative credit union is rich. Before they were formalised, Jamaicans were already practising co-operative banking informally through the partner system. Jamaicans instinctively understand the value of using a collective mechanism to expand their finances. Credit unions are a reflection of this instinct… people helping people,” Mr. Holness said. The Prime Minister noted that the Credit Union Reform process, which started almost 16 years ago, included a decision in 2015 to have primary legislation to regulate the credit union sector, giving direct supervision of credit unions through the Bank of Jamaica. “I have been paying close attention. I don’t like to get too much into the regulatory issues, especially where there are statutory authorities to do this. However, anything that involves one million people and $95 billion in assets, the Prime Minister has to take account,” he said. Mr. Holness said he was determined that before any legislation was passed, it was incumbent that dialogue be had with the Credit Union League to discuss the intricacies surrounding regulations. “The legislation started before we became the Government, so I wanted to be clear on both the intention and the process and to be satisfied that, whatever we were doing, we were not about to make enemies of one million persons,” he added. The Prime Minister said the meetings and dialogue have been very respectful, and to the point where there is now a climate of trust between all parties. The Prime Minister said he was also mindful that for 70 years, when people were locked out of the formal banking system, it was the credit union that filled the gap in providing credit for the average Jamaican citizen. Mr. Holness said that from what he has seen, the new thrust will be that whatever regulations are passed, they will, in no way, disrupt the normal operations of the credit unions. Garwin Davis
