Meeting with Pope Francis (6/5/2024 4)

Today the Chair and Vice-Chair of the International Associaton of Deposit Insurers - IADI (Alejandro Lopez and Alfredo Pallini - Director General of the FITD ) had the honour of meeting Pope Francis at the Vatican. These occasions are not only a testimony to the importance of deposit guarantee schemes and the FITD, but also moments of deep reflection on the ethical role of savings protection in our society.

Pope Francis has often spoken of the importance of economic justice and the protection of the most vulnerable, and the work of the FITD and other deposit guarantee schemes around the world fits perfectly into this vision. The protection of bank deposits is not just a technical or financial matter, but represents a moral commitment to the safety and confidence of savers. In an increasingly complex and interconnected world, ensuring that people's savings are protected is crucial to maintaining economic stability and social cohesion.

Within the IADI - consisting of 98 deposit guarantee schemes representing as many countries from all over the world - all members are actively engaged in international cooperation and in fulfilling the important mission entrusted to DGSs concerning the protection of bank deposits.
