Deposit insurance Iceland






Deposit insurance in Iceland is handled by Depositors' and Investors' Guarantee Fund (Tryggingarsjóšur) and covers a minimum of 20 887 euros.However, the fund was drastically insufficient to cover the bank failures of the 2008–2010 Icelandic financial crisis, particularly Icesave. This case shows the limits of deposit insurance in protecting against systemic failure (as opposed to the collapse of a single bank or other institution).
