Former Korea Securities Depository (KSD) Chairman Yoon Jae-hoon took office as the new president of Korea Deposit Insurance Corp. (KDIC) on Nov. 21. 

In his inaugural speech, new KDIC President Yoo said he will devote himself to introducing a financing safety account to fulfill its duties as an institution to take preemptive steps to cope with a crisis. 

He also spoke of two other core tasks - overhauling a fund regime to raise effectiveness and sustainability of the deposit insurance system and protecting financial consumers from dangers of financial convergence and digitalization. 

President Yoo held major positions, such as standing commissioner of the Securities and Futures Commission and director-general of the Treasury Bureau at the Ministry of Economy and Finance (MOEF) and chairman of Korea Securities Depository. 

President Yoo picked the introduction of a financing safety account as KDIC’s core task amid a rising sense of crisis, caused by the straining financial market. 

In the speech, he said, “Amid the situation of widening of variability in the financial and foreign currency markets, caused by steep interest hikes, coupled with price hikes, (the national economy) is facing with multiple crises with rising fears over the declining real economy.” 

KDIC will devote itself to introducing a financing safety account to fulfill its role as an institution to cope with crises, he said. 

President Yoo said, “The government is seeking to make a revision of the Act on Protecting Depositors, which would call for the installment of a financing safety account to preempt the contamination of a crisis, caused by the stiffening of the financial market.” 

He called for KDIC to make preparations for the parliament’s discussion of the revision of the Act on Protecting Depositors and taking follow-up steps. 

President Yoo stressed the need for overhauling the scope of protecting depositors and deposit insurance premiums based on consensus of the financial business community. 

A plan to overhaul the matters will be worked out by next August by fully gathering views from stakeholders with a task force team, inaugurated in March, taking the initiative.
