Ex ante contributions: risk methodology review (March 2017) 

The Dutch Deposit Guarantee is funded by the banks, based on risk-weighted levies. For this risk weighting, we divide banks into four risk categories using different indicators. The risk methodology developed for this purpose underwent limited revision in early 2017. The risk methodology is laid down in a ministerial regulation. The new methodology has gone into effect in the second quarter of 2017. Please consult the fact sheet below for an overview of the amendments.

Extraordinary contributions (ex post)

In case the funds available within the fund are insufficient to finance the reimbursements in a DGS payout situation, extraordinary contributions shall be levied. DNB determines these contributions ex post. In order to have financial resources available in good time, DNB may request an advance from the banks.

Deposit Guarantee Fund

The DGF was established in 2015 to finance the Dutch DGS. The DGF is responsible for managing the financial means for the execution of the DGS. In case a bank goes bankrupt, the DGS finances the reimbursements made to depositors. The DGF can also be used to finance the application of resolution instruments. The DGF is a legal entity under public law and has its registered office in Amsterdam. Below you will find the annual reports of the DGF, which provide insight into the activities and the developments of the DGF.
