Message from the Chairman

IADI has expanded significantly since its establishment in 2002. Membership has grown to over 100 with Members representing sixty-five percent of jurisdictions with deposit insurance systems. The importance of deposit insurance has been widely acknowledged in the aftermath of the global financial crisis. IADI’s role as standard setter for deposit insurance has been recognised by the Financial Stability Board, which has incorporated IADI’s Core Principles for Effective Deposit Insurance Systems into the global Compendium of Financial Standards and are used by the International Monetary Fund and World Bank to assess the stability frameworks of countries around the globe.

I encourage you to consider joining the Association. Many of our Participants have been with IADI since its founding in 2002. Since then, membership has steadily increased to 86 deposit insurers at the present time. Please visit "Join IADI" to learn more. One of the major benefits of joining is you will gain access to our "participants only" website where you will find important and timely research and guidance papers, the Core Principles for Effective Deposit Insurance Systems, deposit insurance survey data, and conferences, seminars and training opportunities, along with other information about creating, operating, maintaining and improving deposit insurance systems. If you have any questions, please contact our Secretariat at your earliest convenience.
