The Co-operators and the Sunshine Coast Credit Union (SCCU) have entered into an arrangement to provide clients and members with more convenient access to each other’s products and services.
On April 27, The Co-operators announced that it had relocated its advisor's office in Gibsons, British Columbia in order to be next door to SCCU's head office. The insurer will operate as Sunshine Coast Insurance Services Inc. and says it will offer a "one-stop shop experience" for local residents.
"Coming together with The Co-operators as Sunshine Coast Insurance Services Inc. is in complete alignment with our commitment to create value for our membership," comments Shelley McDade, CEO of the Sunshine Coast Credit Union. "Now we can provide financial advice to our members and refer them next door for their insurance needs. Consumer expectations are increasing; our goal is to create a better, more efficient experience for those who choose us as their financial institution."
