​​BRUSSELS, 22 July 2016 – ​Representing financial institutions and federations, the WSBI Latin American and Caribbean Group (GRULAC) looks to create and share knowledge with one another and to raise awareness of WSBI and its positions with people in the region.

​The Latin American & Caribbean Regional Group (GRULAC) was established to bring together the members in the region to keep close exchange on specific issues and to promote the exchange of best practices and create opportunities for business cooperation. 

Representing 13 financial institutions from 11 countries, the group’s members meet at least once a year at annual regional group meetings. Those meetings serve as a platform for exchange of experiences among members and also provides potential members or other interested international or regional organizations a way to keep up to date on savings and retail banking as well as WSBI efforts in the region.

​Cooperation between WSBI members in the group ranges from contact building and exchanges of information to the development of concrete business opportunities, at bilateral or multilateral level. For example, members host training workshops and one-on-one study visits for fellow members, sign business cooperation memoranda of understanding, exchange expertise and enter into reciprocal business partnerships.
