How to conduct your credit union’s best planning session ever

first_img 2SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr Before you know it, strategic planning season will be in full swing. Every credit union takes time to build their plan for the upcoming years. But do they do plannning well? Sometimes we leave those strategic planning sessions frustrated, uninspired or even disappointed in the outcomes.How do you take those strategy sessions from boring exercises in futility to engaging moments filled with hope and a positive sense of direction? Besides throwing out the SWOT, there are several practical steps you can take to improve your next meeting focused on long-range issues.Here are five practical suggestions to have the best planning session ever:Address issues honestly—Nothing will ruin a planning session more than a group of people who agree on every issue. Make sure your team engages in lively debate. It’s okay to disagree. And the key word here is “honestly.” Too many times we hold back in meetings. Some people are afraid to speak their mind. Eliminate that attitude in your session. One way to address issues honestly is before the meeting have everyone write down their answers to this question, “What is the elephant in the room issue we must address in this session?” continue reading »last_img read more

Connect with Hispanic members and staff during National Hispanic Heritage Month

first_imgNational Hispanic Heritage Month (HHM), a celebration of Hispanic and Latino culture, heritage and contributions, begins September 15 and continues through October 15 each year.The celebration starts on September 15 because on that day in 1821, five Latin American countries declared their independence: Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua. In addition, Mexico, Chile and Belize celebrate their independence days on September 16, September 18 and September 21, respectively.HHM presents a great opportunity for credit unions to connect with and support their Hispanic members and staff. Here are a few examples:Altura Credit Union in Riverside, Calif., recognizes HHM by promoting a variety of community festivals, contest and events on its website. The credit union also made a $600,000 pledge to the Cheech Marin Center for Chicano Art, Culture & Industry at the Riverside Art Museum earlier this year.Idaho Central Credit Union in Chubbuck, Idaho, sponsors several activities during HHM, including Fiestas Patrias (Mexico’s Independence Day celebration), an All About the Dress Expo and a Latino Expo.1st Bergen Federal Credit Union in Hackensack, N.J., hosted a HHM celebration where the credit union shared its commitment to serve and empower members of the Hispanic community. The event included music and dancing, refreshments and special promotions, including low-interest loans, savings accounts and checking accounts.Another way to celebrate HHM is to create a way for your Hispanic staff and members to share stories about their favorite traditions from their countries of origin. Along those lines, we thought it would be fun to share a bit about where the Coopera team came from and our favorite traditions from those countries. continue reading » 2SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

Ministry to restructure Jiwasraya policies, establish new life insurance firm

first_imgThe State-Owned Enterprises (SOEs) Ministry is planning to restructure state-owned insurance company PT Asuransi Jiwasraya’s policies before carrying them over to a new company and dissolving the ailing insurer.Deputy Minister Kartika “Tiko” Wirjoatmodjo said the ministry made a proposal to the House of Representatives to restructure all of Jiwasraya’s life insurance policies.Should the House agree to the scheme, the ministry will instruct state-owned insurance holding firm PT Bahana Pembangunan Usaha Indonesia (BPUI) to start negotiations with policyholders in August. The negotiations are expected to conclude in December 2021. In the meantime, BPUI will establish a new life insurance company, PT Nusantara Life, which will then hold all of Jiwasraya’s restructured policies. Following the transfer, the ministry will then completely dissolve the ailing insurer.Prior to holding the restructured policies, the new company would need a state capital injection to balance out its liabilities and assets as it can no longer rely on Jiwasraya due to its negative equity, which reached Rp 35.9 trillion (US$2.5 billion) as of May 31.“With a negative figure that big, it’s impossible for the ministry to create a new company without a state capital injection,” Tiko said as quoted by Kontan.The amount of state capital will depend on the result of negotiations between policyholders and the House Commission VI on SOEs, trade and industry and Commission XI on financial affairs. Jiwasraya is embroiled in a corruption and money laundering case following its failure to pay out Rp 18 trillion in matured policies due in May to its policyholders. The insurer is accused of investment mismanagement when it invested its premium revenue from the JS Saving Plan, one of the company’s insurance products, in pumped-and-dumped stocks.The JS Saving Plan product offered a return of between 9 and 13 percent, almost twice the amount of return offered by the time deposit of 5 percent to 7 percent.Tiko said the ministry would ensure the health of the new company by reducing the amount of policy returns offered to its customers.“Several policies can enjoy high returns of up to 13 percent. We have to lower this to around 6 percent to 7 percent,” he said.Insurance expert Irvan Rahardjo said on Thursday that establishing a new company might be the most feasible scheme to solve Jiwasaraya’s problems.“Relying on capital injection from the government will be the most sensible thing to do to establish Nusantara Life because the proceeds of the sales of the insurer’s subsidiary, Jiwasraya Putra, will not be enough to pay for the overdue claims,” he said.Life insurer PT Taspen Life would reportedly buy 70 percent of Jiwasraya Putra’s shares for Rp 2.6 trillion, while state-owned Bank Tabungan Negara (BTN) would buy the remaining 30 percent, said Jiwasraya president director Hexana Tri Sasongko as reported by Kontan.Irvan said that Jiwasraya’s assets, which were confiscated and then recovered, would not be sufficient to cover for the Rp 18 trillion in claims as the value of many of the shares and mutual funds had depleted significantly. The government would also need time to sell other illiquid assets, such as properties confiscated from the suspects.“Now the question is: How much will the capital injection be and how soon can [the government and the House] agree to provide it during this pandemic?” he told The Jakarta Post, adding that he projected the government would need around Rp 10 trillion.Other than recording negative equity, Jiwasraya also recorded high liabilities and depleted assets.As of May, the insurer recorded total liabilities of Rp 52.9 trillion, which consisted of Rp 36.4 trillion in conventional policy liabilities and Rp 16.5 trillion in JS Saving Plan liabilities. Its assets depleted to Rp 17 trillion from Rp 23 trillion in 2018.Tiko said the greatest liquidity pressure came from its JS Saving Plan, which caused the company’s unpaid claims to reach Rp 18 trillion as of May despite the fact that it had paid Rp 470 billion in March.At the same time, the insurer’s risk-based capital ratio slumped to minus 1,907 percent, well below the minimum ratio of 120 percent required by the Financial Services Authority (OJK).center_img Topics :last_img read more

Brisbane auction clearance rates remain steady despite a cooling in other states

first_imgPASSED IN: The price was not right for this modern Teneriffe home.BRISBANE’S auction clearance rates have remained around a steady 50 per cent while CoreLogic figures reveal other states have cooled.In Teneriffe a recently renovated two-storey home at 300 Kent St failed to attract a single bid from the handful of registered bidders.After auctioneer Haesley Cush asked for bidding to start at $1.55 million, there were a few quiet minutes before it was passed in. What it looked like before renovation.“They renovated it for themselves, but then they found another property that they liked,” Mr Cush said. “It is an area that is in such high demand and affordability can be restrictive so often people want to buy them when they are smaller so they are more affordable.”He said there were still a number of unrenovated older homes in the area and they were always popular when they came on the market.
