Abstract

Globalisation and changes in financial systems across the world are causing marked changes in processes of financial regulation and supervision and are also calling into question the existing arrangements for protecting depositors and investors. This paper examines the factors prompting the changes. It first presents theoretical considerations governing supervision, regulation and protection. It continues by presenting some history of depositor protection in the European Union in the process overcoming a remarkable paucity of accessible information on the subject. It continues by presenting as much history of depositor and investor protection in the Netherlands as could be garnered from public and DNB sources. It describes instances where the present arrangements might be changed. It concludes by noting that debate in the Netherlands concerning reform is vigorous. It is hoped that this paper will contribute to that debate and will help to build a consensus on the nature of the reforms that are needed.
