Abstract

This paper analyses the need for enhanced statutory depositor protection in the mobile money/mobile banking sectors, upon banking and corporate insolvency in Sub-Saharan African (SSA) developing economies. The universal banking model, and the concepts of deposit insurance schemes, or deposit guarantee (as is commonly known in the UK/EU) are analysed, their advantages in streamlining depositor protection, and the would be impact in Sub-Saharan African developing economies’ mobile banking sectors are explored. The concepts of ring-fencing and structural separation as conceptual tools that could enhance depositor protection on banking and corporate insolvency in SSA developing economies are examined.
