History of Jamaica National Building Society 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. In 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. – See more at: http://www.jnbs.com/about#sthash.wlBiuUaG.dpuf
