The PDIC regularly conducts public biddings to expeditiously dispose non-financial assets in support of its strategic directions under PDIC's Roadmap to 2016. As Liquidator of closed banks, PDIC disposes assets acquired from closed banks to benefit the uninsured depositors and creditors by way of helping enhance recovery of their deposits and investments. Meantime, proceeds from the disposal of corporate assets are added to the Deposit Insurance Fund (DIF), the funding source for payouts of deposit insurance claims. The PDIC is tasked to prudently manage and continuously build up the adequacy level of the Fund.
