The FGDR’s intrinsic mission is to promote sustainability and social responsibility. It works to support the public interest and serve the public and is one of the institutions that forms the “banking and financial safety net”.
Its role is to:
- anticipate crises;
- prevent them from occurring or minimise their impact;
- protect customers and their assets;
- help build public confidence in the banking system.
The FGDR’s aim is to strengthen its social and environmental responsibility and to be, for both the public and its financial sector members, an agent of responsible finance to which they themselves are committed and contribute.
The mechanisms for building up its reserves, through contributions that are based on deposit amounts and risk-weighted, favour the strongest, best managed institutions.
