Council hopeful of recouping Iceland money

First published in News

Ceredigion Council is hopeful of recouping most of its money invested in Icelandic  banks before a financial crash five years ago.

Gwyn Jones, finance director for Ceredigion council told members it was hoped 100% of funds would be recovered from two of the banks in question, and 88% from another.

The global financial crisis of 2008 saw Iceland's three major banks going under, taking with them nearly £1billion of investments from authorities across the UK.

Ceredigion council invested £5.5million in total in Glitnir, Heritable and Landsbanki.

Mr Jones stated he will continue to report updates to Cabinet when more information becomes available.
