INFORMATION ON DEPOSIT GUARANTEE SCHEME FOR DEPOSITORS

Nova KBM d.d. is a member of the deposit guarantee scheme, established and managed by the Bank of Slovenia pursuant to the Deposit Guarantee Scheme Act. The deposit guarantee scheme provides a guarantee to depositors for funds deposited in case the bank lacks available funds. The scheme is used to repay guaranteed deposits to the depositor and includes other measures enabling access of depositors to their guaranteed deposits in case of bank resolution and compulsory winding-up.
Should your bank become insolvent, your deposits are guaranteed up to EUR 100,000.

If the deposit is not available because the bank cannot meet its financial obligations, depositors are repaid from the deposit guarantee scheme. The guarantee covers up to EUR 100,000 per depositor per bank. That means that the amount covered is determined based on the sum of all deposits held in a particular bank. For instance, if a depositor has EUR 90,000 in a savings account and EUR 20,000 in a transaction account, he/she receives no more than EUR 100,000.
 
What is a deposit?

A deposit is the total balance of all claims a depositor has on the bank arising from any credit balance, which results from funds left in an account or from temporary balances deriving from normal banking transactions and which a bank is required to repay under applicable legal and contractual conditions, transaction account management contract, including a savings deposit, a cash deposit, a certificate of deposit and a bank bill, if issued as a registered security.

A deposit does not include claims that have any of the following characteristics:

  • arising from financial instruments, as defined in the act governing the market in financial instruments, other than a savings product, which is evidenced by a certificate of deposit made out to the bearer and exists as at 2 July 2014;
  • principal not repayable at par value;
  • principal is only repayable at par value under a particular surety, guarantee or agreement provided by the bank or a third party;
  • regarded as debt securities issued by the bank or arising out of own acceptances and bank bills of exchange;
  • may be used solely for repayment of the depositor's obligations to the bank based on an agreement or regulation; or
  • may be considered in the calculation of a bank's capital under Regulation (EU) No. 575/2013 owing to their features.
Which deposits are not guaranteed by the deposit guarantee scheme?

The additional coverage referred to in the preceding indents is guaranteed by the deposit guarantee scheme for six months, triggered by the date on which a depositor acquired a claim against a bank. A depositor that makes a claim for repayment of a guaranteed deposit on these grounds in an amount exceeding EUR 100,000 shall make this claim separately and shall submit to the deposit guarantee scheme an explanation and evidence, if any, justifying the reasons referred to in the preceding paragraph

If you have a joint account with (an)other person(s)
The limit is EUR 100,000 per depositor.

In case of funds in a joint account, the share belonging to a particular beneficiary shall be taken into account as part of the deposit of that beneficiary, if information for the identification of the beneficiaries has been submitted to the bank. If the shares of individual depositors, as the beneficiaries of funds in the joint account, have not been determined and communicated to the bank, it shall be deemed that each beneficiary owns an equal share of the funds.

In case of a joint account, the EUR 100,000 limit applies per depositor. The funds in an account available for disposal to two or more persons as members of a business partnership, association or a similar group that does not have legal personality are summed up in the calculation of the EUR 100,000 limit and treated as deposits of a single depositor. In some cases, e.g. the purchase or sale of housing real estate, deposit guarantee exceeds EUR 100,000.
Funds in trust (escrow) accounts

In case of funds in a trust account, the share belonging to a particular beneficiary shall be taken into account as part of the deposit of that beneficiary, if information for the identification of that beneficiary has been submitted to the bank. If information on the beneficiaries of the funds in a trust account has not been provided to the bank, the trust account shall be treated as a bearer deposit.

The funds in a trust account which, by law or other regulation, are at the disposal of a particular person acting as a representative or manager for the account of a community, which has been established by law or regulation and does not have legal personality shall be deemed to be the claim of the community up to EUR 100,000.

Bank's claims on depositor

The calculation of the amount of the guaranteed deposit to be repaid to a depositor shall not take into account the depositor's liabilities to the bank, except where the depositor's liabilities to the bank fall due payment before or on the guarantee calculation cut-off date, and may be offset against the depositor’s claim for the repayment of the guaranteed deposit in accordance with applicable agreements or regulations that apply to the bank.

Repayment period in case of credit institution failure
Your deposits up to EUR 100,000 will be repaid no later than seven working days. If not paid within this period, please contact the deposit guarantee scheme. Exceptions that apply to certain deposits are listed on the website of the competent deposit guarantee scheme. More information is available at https://www.bsi.si/en.
