Designing an Effective Deposit Insurance Structure: An International Perspective (Special Issue)
Last Updated: 06/28/01

In December 2000, the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago and the Financial Stability Forum cosponsored a symposium on “Designing an Effective Deposit Insurance Structure: An International Perspective.” The symposium was intended to generate informed feedback on its recommendations to countries introducing or modifying deposit insurance schemes. Representatives of the Financial Stability Forum discussed their analyses and recommendations with a select group of leading financial and banking economists. The purpose of this FedLetter is to summarize the discussion at the symposium and the resulting conclusions.
