risk-based deposit insurance

Definition

A high quality insurance that protects savers in the event of bank failure. This kind of insurance also reduces banks failure, as the idea is to get banks to be more sensible in their risk taking when investing customers' deposits. This is achieved by getting banks more prone to risk to pay higher risk-based deposit insurance.
