About the country
Portugal is located in the west of the Iberian Peninsula and is a popular destination for tourists. The Southern European country has been a member of the EU since 1986, was a founding member of NATO, and introduced the euro as its currency in 2002 upon its inception. Apart from tourism, the service sector is the largest source of income. Portugal depends mainly on trade with its EU partners.
Deposits with Atlântico Europa are fully protected for amounts up to EUR 100,000 by the Deposit Guarantee Scheme of Portugal (Fundo de Garantia de Depósitos), backed by the Portuguese state. This protection covers the deposits of all individuals, not just Portuguese citizens. Further information about the Deposit Guarantee Scheme in Portugal can be found at http://www.fgd.pt/en-US/Pages/inicio.aspx.
All Member States of the European Union have agreed on the need to better protect savers. Throughout Europe, the minimum requirements for national Deposit Guarantee Schemes were harmonized a number of years ago (EU Directives 94/19/EC, 2009/14/EC, and 2014/49/EU). These Directives provide a standardized, high level of protection of deposits across the EU regulating, among other things, repayment modalities and repayment deadlines.
