The International Association of Deposit Insurers (IADI) has elected FDIC Vice Chairman Thomas M. Hoenig to serve as its President and as the Chairman of its Executive Council for a two-year term. The election took place at IADI’s annual general meetings held Oct. 25-30 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Mr. Hoenig, who has represented the FDIC at IADI since 2012, will remain as Vice Chairman of the FDIC.
“I am honored to have been selected to serve as President of IADI, which is now recognized as the global standard-setting body for deposit insurance by all the major public international financial institutions, including the Financial Stability Board, the Basel Committee for Banking Supervision, the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank,” Mr. Hoenig said.
“IADI, as the authoritative voice on the role deposit insurance plays in promoting global financial stability, is well positioned to influence policy debates globally and I look forward to leading IADI in that arena, which includes enhancing the Association’s research capabilities and its role in providing technical assistance and training to emerging deposit insurance systems around the world.”
“Finally, I would like to recognize and thank Jerzy Pruski, my predecessor at IADI and the President of the Management Board of the Bank Guarantee Fund of Poland, for his contributions and dedication over the past five years. Jerzy has been an excellent leader who has increased IADI’s membership and expanded its influence during his term.”
IADI, based in Basel, Switzerland with 80 member institutions from around the world, was established in 2002 to contribute to the stability of financial systems by promoting international cooperation and best practices among deposit insurers and other parties responsible for financial safety net arrangements.
