Wednesday, May 25, 2022

The South African Reserve Bank (SARB) has published for public comment a discussion paper titled ‘Corporation for Deposit Insurance: Approach to deposit insurance public awareness and communication’.

The central bank said the paper recommends proposals on how the Corporation for Deposit Insurance (CODI) intends fulfilling the responsibility given to it, in terms of the Financial Sector Laws Amendment Act 23 of 2021 (FSLAA), to promote awareness of the protection it will offer to financial customers.

“The paper focuses on how CODI will collaborate with other financial sector participants, including banks, in informing depositors of the benefits and limitations of the protection it offers.

“The paper also discusses the role of member banks in deposit insurance public awareness, and takes into account country-specific characteristics and applicable international standards,” said the SARB.
