Reliable financial sector
Taking out health insurance, saving for a home, putting aside money for extra pension income – for all your money matters, you must be able to rely on financial institutions, such as banks and insurers. At De Nederlandsche Bank (DNB) we are working hard to keep the financial sector secure and stable. Financial institutions must hold sufficient capital and comply with the law, and we supervise whether they do so. If they do not, we will take action. If your bank goes bankrupt, we will activate the deposit guarantee scheme. As an account holder, you will get your money back up to a maximum of EUR 100,000.
