Crises in the banking sector and attempts to refinance: Ireland

Anglo seizes assets of Kelly company

Sheehy takes with him longstanding AIB chairman Dermot Gleeson and finance director John O’Donnell, leaving a sizeable power vacuum at the top that will be filled, for the time being, by new chairman Dan O’Connor, a respected former senior executive with finance giant GE Capital - and a potential replacement as chief executive. O’Connor was once touted as a potential chief executive at Bank of Ireland.

The departure of AIB’s top triumvirate will satisfy those who had called for heads, but will do little to solve AIB’s mounting problems which, in any event, have increasingly become a matter for the Department of Finance, since the bank was wrapped in the cotton wool of the government guarantee scheme last September.

Allied Irish Banks, p.l.c. Capital Update

20th April 2009

The NTMA (Ireland) and NAMA (The Bad Bank) - The Matter of the Pricing of Imparied Assets.


Breakfast at Lemon, Dawson StreetThe concern of my taxi driver in Dawson Street the other night was that both the US and UK authorities had considered the bad bank proposition and dismissed it, however Ireland has gone headlong for that strategic approach, "ah well" (he said) "sure, if they get this bit wrong in Leinster House, then we are all (bleep bleep)!!"

NAMA (the National Asset Management Agency) was first proposed in a report prepared for the Irish NTMA (National Treasury Management Authority) by Dr. Peter Bacon (apparently known as 'Rasher' to his friends). NAMA is the formal title of 'the Bad Bank of Ireland'; the original report (abridged version) which is interesting in its practical 'business-like' perspective, addressing the arithmetic of valuing impaired assets transferred from a banking system to a government vehicle & the implications therof on the capital position of the banks and on the consequent freedom or otherwise of the property market is available on the NTMA site here;- http://www.ntma.ie/Publications/2009/NAMAsummary.pdf
