From October 2017 onwards, balances held at the following banks are covered by the deposit guarantee, providing these balances are held at the branch offices of these banks on Bonaire, St Eustatius and Saba:*
- Banco di Caribe N.V.
- Maduro & Curiel's Bank (Bonaire) N.V.
- Orco Bank N.V.
- RBC Royal Bank N.V.
- The Windward Islands Bank Ltd.
- Vidanova Bank N.V.
The list of banks covered by the deposit guarantee is subject to change. This may for instance happen if a new bank is licensed to launch operations in the Caribbean Netherlands. If in doubt, we would advise you to check with your bank whether your money is covered by the deposit guarantee. DNB's website for the Caribbean Netherlands will always provide an up-to-date list of banks covered by the deposit guarantee.
*) Currently, First Caribbean International Bank (Cayman) Ltd. and PSB Bank N.V. are also licensed to provide services in the Caribbean Netherlands. As these two banks currently have no branch offices on Bonaire, St Eustatius or Saba, the balances held at these banks are not eligible for the DGS for the Caribbean Netherlands. The branch of Girobank N.V. on Bonaire is in wind-down. Money held at the branch upon termination of the authorisation, will remain eligible for the deposit guarantee.
