The history of First Regional Co-operative Credit Union Ltd. is rooted in some 55 years of dedicated service to its members through a range of strategic mergers and propitious partnerships that have resulted in a more vibrant, stronger Credit Union, equipped to better serve its members.
It is this rich history, anchored by a commitment to continuous improvement that has enabled First Regional to deliver world-class financial products to its members, providing them with opportunities to realize their life ambitions and goals.
First Regional emerged as a larger, safer Credit Union in 2006, with the amalgamation of the St. Ann Co-operative Credit Union and the St. Mary Co-operative Credit Union. The newly-minted First Regio0nal Co-operative Credit Union Ltd. was ready to facilitate change, improve the welfare of the less fortunate, and shape the future of the communities in which it operates.
Since 2006, First Regional has garnered a number of awards and achievements, and has marked various milestones. The latest milestone was its strategic merger in July 1, 2013 with the Round Hill Hotel Staff Co-operative Credit Union and the Hospitality Industries Co-operative Credit Union, which saw First Regional expanding its scope of operations island-wide to serve workers in Jamaica’s hospitality industry.
