The Jurisdiction Of Croatia

The Republic of Croatia, which is normally just known as Croatia, is a sovereign state that is located at the crossroads of South-eastern Europe, Central Europe and the Mediterranean. The country has a population of around 4.3 million people as is governed by a parliamentary system and it has been categorized as an emerging and developing country by the International Monetary Fund (IMF).

The economy of Croatia is dominated by the service sector and other major industries are agriculture and the industrial sector.  The World Bank has classified Croatia as a high income country and the nation is socially and politically stable. Croatia became a member of the European Union (EU) in 2013. The national currency is the Kuna and this is pegged to the Euro.

There are two regulators of the financial system in Croatia and these are the Croatian National Bank and the Croatian Financial Services Supervisory Agency. The banking regulations are supervised by the Croatia National Bank and there are very prudent regulations in place. To promote financial stability in the country there are various levels of risk management.

Croatia has been on a mission to comply with international banking standards since the 1990’s and over the years it has achieved this. The banks have to comply with capital adequacy standards, liquidity ratios, asset restrictions, limits on large credit exposures, systems in place for risk management, regular reporting and disclosure and the Croatian National Bank has strong enforcement and surveillance powers.

These measures have been very successful and are still evolving. The regulator wants to ensure that Croatia is seen as a sound jurisdiction for international banking and it is ruthless in this pursuit. This makes Croatia a very good choice of jurisdiction for the protection, diversification and growth of your capital.

As a member of the European Union (EU), Croatia has now introduced the Deposit Guarantee Scheme. The aim of the scheme is to provide coverage for the protection of bank deposits that are made by investors. It is very unlikely that a Croatian bank would go into default with all of the regulations that are in place, but if it did happen and the bank was unable to meet its payable obligations, then the scheme will guarantee to cover up to 100,000 EUR in client deposits. You can find out more about the Deposit Guarantee Scheme from your professional international banking consultant at the Offshore Pro Group.
