Deposit Insurance - Ecuador (32K)

In Ecuador all bank and financial institutions are covered by the national deposit insurance, as a contingency in case of a foreclosure or forced financial operations closure of the institution. This means that all of your deposits in savings, checking and/or investments accounts, including Certificates of Deposit, are government insured for up to the amount of up to $32.000,00 USD, per person, in each financial institution. These include:

ø Sector Financiero Público (Financial Public entities)

ø Sector Financiero Privado (Financial Private entities)

ø Sector Financiero Popular (Financial Co-op entities)

This above mentioned means you will be cover up to 32k on each Sector Financiero.
