esisuisse represents the deposit insurance scheme in Switzerland which protects clients’ deposits (irrespective of whether they are domiciled in Switzerland or abroad), in principle, up to a maximum of CHF 100,000 per client. More information on this topic will be explained in detail in one of the official languages or in English at www.esisuisse.ch/de, www.esisuisse.ch/fr, www.esisuisse.ch/it y www.esisuisse.ch/en.
Changes to the Swiss Banking Act and its Ordinance will come into force on 1 January 2023 and will thereby increase the deposit protection for bank accounts (deposit insurance scheme) for specific clients:
What is deposit insurance?
Deposits at BBVA SA are covered by the deposit insurance scheme. In the event of a bankruptcy of BBVA SA, the deposit insurance scheme protects client deposits against loss up to the amount of CHF 100,000 (laid down by law). If a client has multiple accounts at the same bank (BBVA SA), the credit balances are added together, with a maximum amount of CHF 100,000 covered.
What is changing for joint accounts?
If several persons own an account together, this group is treated as an individual, separate client when it comes to protection. This change leads to better client protection.
If this group holds multiple accounts, these are added together. The balance for the group is protected up to a total of CHF 100,000.
As an example, groups might comprise spouses, simple partnerships, communities of heirs or condominium associations.
If individuals in such a group have their own separate client relationship with the bank, a balance of up to CHF 100,000 is also protected for this separate client relationship. This represents more protection for the client.
Until 31 December 2022, the group’s balance was divided among the individuals in the group, the split amount then added together with claims from individuals’ own separate client relationship and the protection was capped at CHF 100,000 per person.
What is changing for financial intermediaries?
Financial intermediaries are no longer protected (no protection and no privileged treatment of deposits in case of bankruptcy). As an example, these include other banks, securities firms and insurance providers.
Where is the protection of bank deposits regulated in law?
The legal provisions for deposit protection can be found in Articles 36a to 37jbis of the amended Banking Act and in Articles 42a to 44a of the amended Banking Ordinance.
Please note that this legal disclaimer is for information purposes only, and that legal provisions are those that are authoritative (i.e. have the force of law).
