Protect your assets
Bank failures can have serious consequences for depositors and other stakeholders. Even though regulators intent to provide effective and efficient solutions, several steps can be taken by creditors to ensure maximum recovery when the financial institution gets permanently closed.
Bank customers and other creditors willing to mitigate their risk and prepare for a holistic asset recovery procedure are invited to contact us to discuss their case.
The objective of a domestic regulator when a bank fails is to orderly resolve the matter and protect the public interest whilst maintaining financial stability. Ordinary creditors, bank customers and depositors need clarity on how to get their investment secured and eventually returned. The aim of this website is to provide clarity on the regulatory intervention and the evident actions of administration, resolution and ultimately asset and fund recovery.
Most bank failures trigger the ‘sale of the business tool’, where the healthy parts of the financial institution are sold, and bank customers experience no losses. Where a bank is permanently closed, the domestic deposit guarantee scheme covers the insured account balance. The surplus is considered unsecured in case of liquidation. In cases when deposit protection is inadequate, not feasible, or the creditor is disqualified by a deposit guarantee scheme, caution is advised.
