PCU officially launches new financial product for millennials and gen z


In an effort to engage with and encourage Millennials to save, increase their financial acumen and generate wealth, the Pentecostal Credit Union (PCU) officially launched GiftBox!, its latest financial product at siOn London, south London.

Launch attendees included leading young influencers, creatives and entrepreneurs who heard talks from Jerran Whyte, founder of Belvedere Wealth Management, Jemma Regis, of Jemz Cakes and Shane Bowes, CEO of the PCU and GiftBox!

Bowes stated, “The PCU has been in existence for 42 years and has provided financial services for the Windrush Generation and their children. We now want to reach Millennials and GiftBox! is a product that will make them aware of the benefits of being part of the PCU as well as increase their awareness of financial matters.”

Gift Box will not only provide those who join with the same financial services as Pentecostal Credit Union members, it will also seek to foster community amongst members by hosting networking events and Masterclasses on subjects like finances, entrepreneurship and wealth creation.

Shane Bowes stated, “PCU recognises that a sense of community and relationships are very important for Millennials. GiftBox! aims to foster both by providing a range of in-person and online events so that members can learn, build relationships and generate wealth.”

The PCU wants to spread the word about GiftBox! and encourage people to join. Shane said, “The PCU is keen to build on its legacy of providing financial products that meets the needs of the Pentecostal community and the up-and-coming generation. GiftBox! is one way for us to do so.”
