DEPOSIT GUARANTEE SCHEME PURSUANT TO LEGISLATIVE DECREE NO. 30 OF 15 FEBRUARY 2016 NO. 30 - INFORMATION TO BE PROVIDED TO DEPOSITORS

On 9 March 2016, Legislative Decree No. 30 of 15 February 2016 came into force (the “Decree”), in implementation of Directive 2014/49/EU (so-called “Deposit Guarantee Scheme Directive”). Following on from that provided at Community level, the Decree introduces important innovations to the regulations concerning deposit guarantee funds redefining the scope of deposits admitted and excluded from the guarantee and the reimbursement terms and also the requirement for banks to provide specific information to depositors. CA Indosuez Wealth (Italy) S.p.A. is a member of the Interbank Deposit Protection Fund (the “Fund” or “FITD1; which can be consulted on the website www.fitd.it).

1 The FITD is a consortium under private law between banks, officially recognised by the Bank of Italy as the deposit guarantee scheme. The banks’ membership to the deposit guarantee schemes is compulsory by law.

The Fund is authorised to autonomously reimburse customers credit owed to them by the bank in the case in which it is subject to the compulsory liquidation procedure, relating to funds acquired with the obligation to refund in the form of deposits or in other forms (for example, savings accounts, current accounts, etc.), upon the issuance of bank drafts and other securities similar thereto. The reimbursement is limited to €100,000.00 (one hundred thousand) for the depositor and, for the purposes of calculating this limit:

  1. Deposits into an account held by two or more persons as participants of an entity without a legal personality are treated as if they were made by a single depositor;
  2. In the case of joint accounts, the full legal limit applies to each depositor;
  3. Account shall be taken of the compensation of any payables the depositor owes the bank, if payable on the date on which the effects of the compulsory liquidation measure are produced, to the extent to which the compensation is possible in accordance with the applicable legal or contractual provisions.

The following are excluded from the reimbursement:

  • Deposits whose owners at the time of the initiation of the compulsory liquidation procedure are not identified pursuant to money laundering regulations;
  • Deposits arising out of transactions in relation to which there has been a definitive conviction for the offences of money laundering and use of money, assets or profits of illicit origin. Notwithstanding that provided by Article 648-quater of the Criminal Code (confiscation);
  • Deposits made in their name and on their behalf by banks, financial institutions

As defined by Article 4, paragraph 1(26) of Regulation (EU) No. 575/2013 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 26 June 2013.

, investment firms, insurance companies, reinsurance companies, collective savings investment bodies and pension funds, as well as public bodies;

  • Own funds

3 As defined by Article 4, paragraph 1(118) of Regulation (EU) No. 575/2013 of the European Parliament or of the Council of 26 June 2013.

  • bonds and loans arising out of own acceptances and promissory notes and transactions in securities.

The limit of €100,000.00 per depositor shall not apply, in the nine months following their crediting or when they become available, to deposits of natural persons pertaining to amounts resulting from:

  • divorce, retirement, termination of the employment relationship, invalidity or death;
  • the payment of insurance benefits, damages or compensation in respect of damage due to acts regarded by the law as crimes against the person or for unjust detention;
  • Transactions relating to the transfer or creation of real rights on real estate units used for residential purposes.
