Credit Union League Official Uneasy About New Regulations

ECCU currency

St. Kitts and cialis soft generic Nevis (WINN):  Credit Union delegates from the OECS sub-region are discussing new regulations and laws to better govern their operations.

But not everyone is happy with the good choice proposed changes.

Some of the regulations are in conflict with the legislation, according to the President of the St Kitts and Nevis National Cooperative League – Andy Liburd.

“We are now faced with new regulations, news acts, new laws, new standards.  They are all coming down on us, and all at the same time,” Liburd complained.

He told the Eleventh Annual OECS Credit Union Summit Thursday that if enacted in their present form, some of lowest price levitra the proposed regulatory measures could have a devastating impact on the credit union movement.

“The credit union has always been regulated, we are not afraid of regulations,” the League president said.

Liburd did not go into details about the specific regulations fuelling his concern.

Another speaker at the Summit  opening at the Marriott Hotel, Premier Vance Amory, insisted that the credit union cannot continue with the existing regulations – regulations thought to need tightening.

Premier Amory suggested that the credit unions in the region need to adjust and respond to the needs of their members.

“I believe there’s an agreement amongst all parties that we cannot continue with the present  regulatory environment where regulators lack the training and capability to undertake effective oversight of these institutions,” Premier Amory told the summit participants.

“They handle large sums of money, people’s money – assets.  We in government therefore have a responsibility to jccgreenwich.org ensure that they are properly regulated,” the prime minister said.

He said the idea was to secure the assets of persons who put their money into the credit union.

Are members' savings within particular credit unions insured, or backed up by other associated larger entities, in case of bankruptcies?

That is a concern!
