How does the DPF contribute to financial sector stability?

  • DPF protects a large percentage of retail depositors. More than 90 percent of the depositors in the sector are fully covered by the UGX 3,000,000 limit.
  • DPF creates confidence in the financial sector by ensuring that customers are paid their deposits in time in the event a contributing institution is closed.
  • Contributing institutions endeavor to put in place adequate risk management systems in order to avoid penalties levied by the DPF.
