Platinum Bank has successfully passed the regular check-up of the Guaranteed Deposits Fund, which was carried out from the 2nd till the 20th of February 2015. The bank meets all the requirements for the Fund’s membership. Positive results of the check-up prove the bank’s reliability and serve as an indicator of its stability for both partners and clients.
Kateryna Rozhkova, acting Chairwoman of the Board of Platinum Bank, notes the following: “I’m glad we have worthily passed the Guaranteed Deposits Fund’s check-up, as in these turbulent times its successful passage is a signal to our clients about our stability. The main thing now is to continue the planned progress forward and support the confidence of depositors without panicking. The fact of our membership in the Guaranteed Deposits Fund, due to our meeting all the necessary requirements, strengthens the trust of our clients and ensures them that keeping funds in our bank is safe and sound.”
At the moment the guaranteed amount of refunding is 200,000 UAH. Recently the deputies have introduced the proposal of raising this amount to 500,000 UAH. The corresponding draft law №2318 was submitted to the Parliament (Verkhovna Rada). “Reality calls for decisive actions regarding the strengthening of depositors’ rights protection,” – says the clarification letter to the draft law,- “The guaranteed amount of refunding under the circumstances of rapid inflation, with the aim of providing proper financial guarantees to the depositors, requires considerable increase.”
