Registered author(s):

    [eng] Although deposit insurance schemes are theoretically redundant with capital adequacy standards, experience showed that a system combining both approaches was necessary in maintaining financial stability. Applications of regulations on the subject vary in countries concerned. As regards deposit insurance schemes however, models implementing risk related premium more effective but more costly to maintain are developing. The new French deposit insurance scheme is in line with this trend, by establishing deposit insurance premia which are based not only on deposits but also on the level of risk specific to each credit institution. The level of risk is determined by different parameters which are solvency, profitability, risk diversification and transformation. . JEL Classifications : G28
