About BND

Deposit Base

In contrast to most commercial banks, Bank of North Dakota (BND) is not a member of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC). North Dakota Century Code 6-09-10 provides that all BND deposits are guaranteed by the full faith and credit of the state of North Dakota.

The deposit base of BND is unique. Its primary deposit base is the state of North Dakota. All state funds and funds of state institutions are deposited with Bank of North Dakota, as required by law. BND also accepts deposits from other sources, including residents and city/county government entities from North Dakota.

Policy & Governance

The state Industrial Commission oversees Bank of North Dakota, as mandated by the 1919 state legislature. Members of the Industrial Commission are the governor, who acts as chairman, the attorney general and the commissioner of agriculture of the state of North Dakota.

The Bank also has a seven-member Advisory Board appointed by the governor. The members are knowledgeable in banking and finance. The Advisory Board reviews the Bank's operations and makes recommendations to the Industrial Commission relating to the Bank's management, services, policies and procedures.
