The Fonds de Garantie des Dépôts et de Résolution (FGDR) is an entity whose mission is to serve the public interest and protect customers in the event that their bank or financial institution fails.
The FGDR manages three guarantee mechanisms: the deposit guarantee scheme, the investor compensation scheme and the performance bonds guarantee scheme.
It is responsible for compensating you in the event that your bank or investment firm is declared as having failed and your assets have become unavailable. It can also intervene before the institution fails in order to avoid an interruption in customer services.
Here you will find basic information about the FGDR, its history, its organisation, a few figures, its partners in France and its international partners.
