Accordingly, as from the 1st October 2018, the deposit insurance scheme has 14 (fourteen) bank members. From this date, Bank Intesa Sanpaolo Albania sh.a. and Banka Amerikane e Investimeve sh.a., in their capacity as acquiring banks, have to keep the insured deposits of the acquired subjects separated for a three month period, for the purposes of deposit insurance by the Albanian Deposit Insurance Agency.
