The minister of economic affairs has proposed the establishment of a guarantee fund for contributors and investors in credit institutions. The proposed act, amending the 1995 act, incorporates the EU directive on investor guarantee funds. It will establish a joint regulation of guarantee schemes for contributors and investors in credit institutions including banks, mortgage credit institutions and stockbrokers. If any institution covered by the act becomes bankrupt, any cash deposits will consequently be covered up to Dkr300,000 (US$42,000) and security deposits will be covered up to Dkr150,000.
