Core Principles and Research

Brief Description

IADI produces a variety of products to inform its members and other interested parties of the latest issues affecting deposit insurers and to contribute to research designed to enhance the effectiveness of deposit insurance systems around the world. This site contains newsletters, annual reports, research papers, conference proceedings, and the results of IADI Surveys.


IADI Research

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.


Public Consultation Projects

All research published by the International Association of Deposit Insurers is vetted through a public consultation process. To provide independent views, IADI has established an Advisory Panel consisting of top experts on deposit insurance. IADI welcomes comments from deposit insurers or other interested parties on the issues addressed in the research projects below.

To comment on IADI's Public Consultation Papers or Public Consultation Research Plans, please contact the IADI Secretariat or the point of contact reflected on the paper.

Public Consultation Papers

      Please provide views and comments to the IADI Secretariat by 17 November 2017.

Research and Guidance Committee

The RGC has been divided into three groups–a Research Group, an Islamic Deposit Insurance Group and a Guidance Group. The Research Group conducts research, the Islamic Deposit Insurance Group focuses on Islamic deposit insurance issues, and the Guidance Group examines research findings, ensures quality control, and identifies suitable core principles and supporting guidance.
