Savings banks are not operated in order to generate high levels of profits. This means that they are not generally exposed to any significant risks. However, this does not mean that are immune to financial problems. For this reason, the Savings Banks Finance Group implemented an institutional protection scheme which has been recognised as a statutory deposit guarantee scheme under the German Deposit Guarantee Scheme Act (“EinSiG”) on 3 July 2015.
The scheme comprises 13 protection systems:
None of the Sparkassen Finance Group's members have ever experienced an impairment in their services since the saving protection scheme was set up in the 1970-ties nor have any Sparkassen Finance Group customers ever lost any of their savings or interest.
The German Deposit Guarantee Scheme Act (“EinSiG”) came into effect on 3 July 2015 and implements the corresponding EU Directive. The Sparkassen Finance Group revised its savings protection scheme to comply with these statutory provisions. As a result, its savings protection scheme has now been recognised as a statutory deposit guarantee scheme under the German Deposit Guarantee Scheme Act (“EinSiG”).
The protection scheme's main objective is to safeguard the Group's institutions themselves and protect them in the event of risk or actual financial difficulty. This is intended to safeguard all deposits and offer ongoing and comprehensive protection to customers.
The Sparkassen Finance Group's institutional protection scheme has been recognised as a statutory deposit guarantee scheme under the German Deposit Guarantee Scheme Act (“EinSiG”). In the extremely unlikely event that the institutional protection scheme should fail, all of our customers are guaranteed to be refunded deposits of up to 100,000 Euro in line with the provisions of the German Deposit Guarantee Scheme Act.
