The Bank Guarantee Fund is active in the international arena.
The Fund is a member of international organizations affiliating deposit guarantee institutions on both a European level (i.e. European Forum of Deposit Insurers – EFDI) and a global level (i.e. International Association of Deposit Insurers – IADI). These organizations provide a forum for exchange of experiences among associated institutions. Joint initiatives allow for standardizing regulations and increase their efficiency. As part of its involvement in the international arena, the Bank Guarantee Fund analyses operations of foreign deposit guarantee schemes. In particular, this applies to the countries in which credit institutions operating on the Polish territory have their registered offices.
Bilateral agreements are also an important element of BFG’s international cooperation. They govern principles of mutual cooperation and exchange of information.
