VMBS expands its remittance operations to customers of Jamaica

VMBS Money Transfer Services (VMTS) has expanded its remittance operations to Jamaica since July 2017. Customers from Jamaica can now receive their funds at five COK Sodality Credit Union locations across the island.

Jamaicans Can Now Receive Funds at Five Locations

All members and customers of Victoria Mutual who live in the UK, USA, Canada and including over 200 countries are now able to send funds to their close relatives and friends in Jamaica quickly and safely. Residents of Jamaica can conveniently collect their funds at any one of the COK Sodality locations mentioned or deposit their received funds to their individual COK accounts. The COK Sodality locations are found in Kingston, Portmore, Mandeville and Montego Bay.

Improving the Financial Services is Important

According to Peter Reid, the CEO of Building Society Operations at VMBS, it is essential for the company to deliver their services “in the most efficient and customer-centric fashion”. He further adds that “this partnership between Victoria Mutual and COK reflects the improvements [they] continue to make in [their] business process in order to better serve [their] Members and customers, guided by our Strategic Goal of being a Modern Mutual, and our Core Values of being Member Focused and Innovative.”

The senior Vice-President of Victoria Mutual states that the company members are “delighted to have signed an agreement with RIA Financial Services, the third largest money transfer company in the world, and a company that is committed as we are to service excellence. RIA’s presence throughout the key Jamaican sending markets in the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom, along with their rapidly growing network of more than 100,000 locations in 121 countries, will enable Victoria Mutual to extend its reach to Jamaicans throughout the world”.

Partnering With The Best Sub-agents

On the other hand, the CEO for VMTS, Michael Howard is as excited about this new partnership and project. He highlights how the company members are passionate about not just meeting the needs of its customers, but exceeding their expectations as well. He claims, “We strive to enable our customers to access our network conveniently — in order to meet their financial needs and achieve their full potential. As we continue to expand the VMBS Money transfer services throughout Jamaica, we are committed to ensuring that we partner with the best quality sub-agents to represent the VMBS remittance brand, and we believe that COK Sodality truly exemplifies the values for which we stand.”

Andre Gooden, the Chief Business Development Officer of COK Sodality is enthusiastic about this new partnership and he underlines the strong similarity that lies between both organisations which has led to this collaboration. Since both brands are already renowned in Jamaica and the Diaspora, this partnership is one that is “mutually beneficial” to both of them. He says that “as part of our ongoing strategic initiative to make our services even more widely accessible to our Members, a partnership with VMBS Money Transfer Services will give our overseas members, in particular, yet another method of sending funds to their accounts at COK. We look forward to working with the VM Group as we both seek to build our nation in this our 55th year of Independence.”

Offering An Affordable Service

Juan Bianchi, the president and CEO of RIA Financial Services (the money transfer agent of VMTS) is also pleased with this new agreement with Victoria Mutual. For him, “Victoria Mutual has a tradition of excellence in the consumer financial sector in Jamaica dating over a century. RIA shares that core value and both RIA and Victoria Mutual are committed to providing the most convenient, fast, high quality and affordable services in the money transfer industry.” Victoria Mutual Money Transfer Services Limited is a member of the Victoria Mutual Group, which also includes The Victoria Mutual Building Society, a mutual organization, which has been providing financial solutions for Jamaicans at home and abroad for over 130 years”.
