The CCCU is the governing body of the credit union movement throughout the Caribbean and has been hosted by St. Kitts since 2002, following its relocation from Barbados.

Minister Richards said the regional credit union sector continues to show growth and the situation in St. Kitts and Nevis is reflective of this.
The US $1.3 million headquarters of the Caribbean Confederation of Credit Unions is located at the corner of Wilkin Street and St. Johnston Avenue in Fortlands.
