IADI Urged to Consider Credit Union Deposit Insurance Schemes in Setting Ratios
World Council of Credit Unions (World Council) filed its comment letter on the International Association of Deposit Insurers on the Association’s draft research paper Deposit Insurance Fund Target Ratios. WOCCU included information on the National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund (NCUSIF) in the United States, the United Kingdoms’ Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS), and Canadian provincial deposit insurance funds noting that including these successful approaches taken by the respective schemes, albeit different in their approaches, can help inform the IADI’s future work on deposit insurance fund target ratios.
The letter notes that these funding structures strike an appropriate balance vis-à-vis the costs of levies versus pro- and counter-cyclality versus maintaining readily available funds to pay for insurance losses.
