The Caisse populaire Desjardins de Brome-Missisquoi was founded on September 1, 2002. It resulted from the merger of the caisses populaire Desjardins de Cowansville, de Dunham, de Sutton and d'Adamsville.
The caisses merged to accelerate their growth while strengthening their competitive position. The main objectives of the new Caisse are to provide members with access to specialized resources and to better face the competition.
In September 2003, the Caisse joined the Desjardins Business Centre so that its members could take advantage of its team of experts in various areas of the industry.
In 2006, the Caisse created a new Asset Management team to better meet member needs. These employees specialize in investment and financial planning. The Asset Management team is located in special offices in the Caisse head office.
On May 14, 2010, the Adamsville Service Centre closed its doors. The Caisse had noticed how its members' habits had changed and that fewer of them carried out their operations at the Adamsville Service Centre exclusively. More and more members were using new technologies like AccèsD, ATMs and direct payments. Low use and high operational costs forced the closure of the Adamsville Service Centre.
