The Deposit Protection Fund (FZD) will start tomorrow 10 am the payment of guaranteed deposits to depositors of Invest Bank Montenegro (IBM).
The depositors of that financial institution, which has been bankrupt since January 4, will raise their money through Societe Generale, Hipotekarna and NLB. The Deposit Protection Fund is obliged to pay EUR 22.58 million to 2,730 depositors, of whom 2,340 are physical persons.
“Depositors need to come with IDs at the counter and, upon identification, can withdraw their guaranteed deposit in cash, leave it at that bank or transfer it to another bank. When it comes to legal entities, they will only be able to transfer money to the bank accounts abroad, “said the Director of the Deposit Protection Fund Predrag Markovic.
In an interview with Nova M, he said that they had completed a full scan of the situation with the banks, which took over the responsibility of the payment.
“This is a very stressful situation, it is the first time in Montenegro. I think that the banks have shown seriousness and business acumen in the previous period and in the best way have approached the organization of payment points, “Markovic pointed out.
