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.

In May 2016, the Virgin Islands Deposit Insurance Act 2016 (VIDIC Act) providing necessary framework was published. The implementation of the deposit insurance system is designed to protect at least savings of domestic depositors in the Territory.
