Facilitating the sharing and exchange of expertise and information on deposit insurance issues is one of the key objectives of the International Association of Deposit Insurers (IADI). IADI produces research products including, research plans, research (discussion) papers and guidance papers. The projects are initiated under the direction of the Research and Guidance Committee (RGC). The objective of these products is to provide academia, policy makers, deposit insurers and others with guidance and research data to improve the effectiveness of deposit insurance system in their respective jurisdictions. The topics address deposit insurance issues relating to policy, operational, legal and other areas related to running a deposit insurance system.
The process for producing a final report (either research oriented or guidance) involves drafting a plan; undertaking research through collection and analysis of data, case studies or other methodologies; developing guidance from the research; and validating the guidance by engaging in consultations through conferences and reviews by authoritative parties. To date, IADI has undertaken research and developed guidance that is applicable to a wide range of deposit insurance settings, circumstance and structures.
