Global Profit

The Collateral Pool Board oversees the risk-sharing pool of collateral pledged by participating financial institutions to guarantee public deposits. The duties of the Board are found in TCA 9-4-508.

The Board oversees the operations of the Collateral Pool for Public Deposits, which was created to provide an alternative method for securing public deposits held by banks and savings institutions. Under the law governing the Pool, if a bank applied to and is accepted into the Collateral Pool, all of its public deposits are secured by the deposit of an amount of collateral determined by the Board to be required. Then, if there is a default by a bank or savings institution, the public depositors are made whole in a three (3) step process. 

First, they receive any applicable federal deposit insurance.
Next, the collateral pledged by the bank or savings institution under the Pool provisions issued to satisfy the claims.
Finally, if the claims are not completely satisfied after steps one and two,the State Treasurer assesses the members of the Pool an amount sufficient to satisfy the claims.
