At the 18th IADI Annual General Meeting on 11 October 2019, the Members approved a new Differentiated Fee Model (DFM), which takes effect as of FY 2020/21, starting from 1 April 2020. In the Model, fees are based on indicators of the Members size of their deposit-taking sector (Gross Domestic Product – GDP) and the relative income of jurisdictions (per capita GDP). The aforementioned two indicators are divided into four categories, in which Member Fees range from CHF 18,500 to CHF 37,000. Please see the fee table below.
