Asset Protection Scheme


UK insurance plan supporting banks in the United Kingdom, a government program established in 2009 that, for a fee, supports banks which have many bad loans and whose capital base is therefore compromised. It provides insurance against further losses, on the security of agreed assets, so that banks can continue to lend money.
