Our aim is to assist bank depositors to get their deposits returned in an orderly manner. Often times, bank failures are triggered by liquidity shortfalls, and even when financial institutions claim to have sufficient loss absorption capital, this does not mean that liquidity is available to customers. It is inevitable that open resolution triggers a run on the bank and enables those with sly thoughts to reclaim deposits that they might not be approved for. Percentage-wise, loan portfolios always default after a resolution. This means that liquidity is decreased by the potential write off of a portfolio of non-performing loans. This is just one of the few consequences of a resolution we deal with on a daily basis. It also means that we need to be creative within the parameters of the national insolvency laws and European directives to ensure maximum recovery for our clients.

- Interest swap claims:
Corporate customers of Rabobank, ING and ABN AMRO were offered an exotic insurance product to protect themselves against the risk of increasing interest rates. Periodic premiums to cover the risk were fluctuating. Banks are negligent in their information towards customers who purchased these interest swaps.
