Deposit guarantee scheme is a financial stability mechanism
implemented in many countries to protect bank depositors against the loss of their deposits
in the case when a bank is unable to meet its obligations to depositors
by compensating certain deposits held by depositors of the bank.
This compensation is paid out from the contributions which banks have made
into a deposit guarantee fund.
