From as early as 1864, the concept of the Building Society was introduced to Jamaica to assist working and middle class people to realise 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 Chairma n, 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 radio-telephone.
For over 134 years Jamaica National Building Society has provided excellent financial solutions in Jamaica. We are dedicated to giving our members’ financial solutions to suit their individual needs. Read more......Read less
