The Isle of Man has a depositors’ compensation scheme (DCS) which may compensate you if a Class 1(1) bank in which you have deposited money fails. Note that deposits with a Class 1(2) bank are NOT protected by the DCS. Class 1(3) banks are not permitted to take deposits in the Isle of Man. Please read the DCS Regulations 2010 for full details of the 2010 DCS (in operation from 23 October 2010).
