From as early as 1864, the concept of the Building Society was introduced to Jamaica to assist working and middle class people to realize their dream to own their own homes. I n the ensuing years, a number of Building Societies sprung to life and in the year 1865, an Act for the Regulation and Encouragement of Benefit Building Societies was passed.

The Jamaica National Building Society (JNBS) is the product of a series of mergers pioneered by the Westmoreland Building Society. Today, Jamaica National is ranked among Jamaica’s largest financial institutions offering a blend of financial services and mortgage plans to customers living in Jamaica, the United States of America, the United Kingdom, Canada and The Cayman Islands.

In this article, we trace its roots, beginning with the Westmoreland Building Society from which it evolved. On Thursday, August 13, 1874, the Westmoreland Building Society held its first Directors’ Meeting. The Reverend Henry Clarke, Founder and first Chairman, presided. In 1967, the Society entered a period of expansion by absorbing the Manchester Mutual Benefit Society, building new offices in Savanna-la-Mar and establishing branches in Santa Cruz, Mandeville, May Pen and Kingston, linking them all by radiotelephone.

The Westmoreland Building Society stands as a pioneer in Building Society mergers in Jamaica, beginning with its merger with the Manchester Mutual, and followed by its merge with the St. James Benefit, the St. Ann Benefit and the Brown’s Town Benefit Building Societies.

The St. James Benefit Building Society, founded in 1874 but incorporated in 1901, began modestly as a penny savings bank for members of the congregation of the Reverend Cork, its founder.

The Brown’s Town Benefit Building Society was the “baby” of the merging societies, having been founded only 74 years before in 1896. Its founder, Mr. A. H. Allwood, a solicitor by profession, started the Society with a desk in his own office where people, including little children, encouraged to save, came to deposit their pennies.

Following this early spate of mergers, which culminated in the formation of the JNBS in December 1970, the St. Thomas Mutual Building Society, founded in 1897, formally merged its assets with that of the JNBS in September 1976. The Jamaica Permanent Building Society established in 1878, merged with the JNBS in 1977 and finally in 1983, the St. Mary’s Benefit Building Society established in 1915, merged with the JNBS. The final two acquisitions were Hanover Benefit Building Society in 1996 and Jamaica Savings and Loans Building Society in 2001.

During the past 140 years, steady growth has led the JNBS to be the entity it is today and its success can be attributed to the people of caliber who, over the years, were prepared to see beyond parochialism towards the creation of a Society, better able to compete to fulfill its obligations.

Pepsi is a carbonated soft drink that is produced and manufactured by PepsiCo. Created and developed in 1893 and introduced as Brad's Drink, it was renamed as Pepsi-Cola on Au gust 28, 1898, then to Pepsi in 1961, and in select areas of North America, Pepsi-Cola Made with Real Sugar as of 2014.HistoryThe drink Pepsi was first introduced as Brad's Drink in New Bern, North Carolina, United States, in 1893 by Caleb Bradham, who made it at his drugstore where the drink was sold. It was renamed Pepsi Cola in 1898, named after the digestive enzyme pepsin, and kola nuts used in the recipe. The original recipe also included sugar and vanilla. Bradham sought to create a fountain drink that was appealing and would aid in digestion and boost energy. In 1903, Bradham moved the bottling of Pepsi-Cola from his drugstore to a rented warehouse. That year, Bradham sold 7,968 gallons of syrup. The next year, Pepsi was sold in six-ounce bottles, and sales increased to 19,848 gallons. In 1909, automobile, race pioneer Barney Oldfield was the first celebrity to endorse Pepsi-Cola, describing it as A bully drink... Refreshing, invigorating, a fine bracer before a race. The advertising theme Delicious and Healthful was then used over the next two decades. In 1926, Pepsi has received its first logo redesign since the original design of 1905.

On January 11, 2001, a licence was granted by the Betting, Gaming and Lotteries Commission to Supreme Ventures Limited, to promote and conduct three specific lottery games und er strict rules and regulations established by the Commission. The licence granted by the Commission was valid for 10 years. The Company has since received an extension of its licence to the year 2033.

The Company began operations on June 25, 2001 with two out of the three lottery games that it was licensed to offer. The games were "Cash Pot" and "Lucky5". The third game, Dollaz!, was launched on January 20, 2003. During its relatively short tenure, Supreme Ventures has earned the enviable reputation of being one of the leading and more dynamic companies in Jamaica with its well recognised brand icon being the treasure chest. SVL acquired 100% of the shareholdings in the Jamaica Lottery Company (JLC) in December 2003, thus gaining a larger foothold in the gaming industry with lottery sales for the financial year 2013 exceeding $29.56 Billion.

The company has grown significantly since the acquisition of JLC and now boasts annual revenue in excess of $41 Billion dollars. With a labour force of approximately 220 persons directly employed to the Supreme Ventures Group and over 1150 lottery terminals islandwide, with a total of ten online lottery games, the popularity of our products has increased as everything is now all "under one roof". The local games are Cash Pot, Lucky5, Dollaz!, Lotto, Pick 3, Pick 2, Pick 4, Top Draw (introduced on 25th June 2014), Money Time (introduced on 12th October 2014) and WinQuick, the scratch and win type game.

Supreme Ventures has been introducing the Super Lotto game on August 25, 2009. Super Lotto is a multi-jurisdictional jackpot game, which is the first game of its kind in the Caribbean and Latin America. Super Lotto is sold simultaneously in Jamaica, Barbados, St. Kitts & Nevis, Anguilla, Antigua, St. Maarten, the US Virgin Islands and Pa raguay (which started in April 2014). Super Lotto is similar to Powerball, Euro millions or Mega millions, in which sales of different countries or jurisdictions are combined to facilitate jackpot prizes that have never been seen before in these territories. The game has prize draws twice weekly (Tuesdays and Fridays) at 8:30 p.m. The starting Jackpot is the equivalent of US$1.5M. For more information on Super Lotto you may visit the website at www.superlottogame.com.
