Created by the Law of 25 June 1999, the Fonds de Garantie des Dépôts et de Résolution (FGDR) is responsible for protecting and indemnifying customers in the event of default by their credit institution. Since the Decree of 18 February 2019(1) implementing the deposit guarantee for factoring companies, the Total Net Balance(2) of your accounts in our books is covered, up to a ceiling, by the FGDR.
For greater clarity, a statement of eligibility for the deposit guarantee provided by the FGDR will be indicated shortly on the statements of transactions of your accounts covered by that guarantee. The FGDR will therefore be responsible for paying you compensation if our institution was declared bankrupt and the Total Net Credit Balance of your accounts became unavailable. This scheme ensures that your factoring accounts are protected. In order to provide you with complete information(3), please find attached a memorandum containing the basic information on the protection of deposits, including the guarantee ceiling.
For information on the deposit guarantee, go to the FGDR site: http://www.garantiedesdepots.fr/.
Our sales and customer relations teams are at your disposal for any additional information about this Decree.
