Icesave: the end-game?

with one comment

The Dutch government has just announced that a new Icesave-deal has been finalised. The interests on the loan to the Dutch will be 3% and 3,3% to the UK, reflecting the interest rates in the Eurozone vs the UK. The Icelandic government will have a press conference at 6pm GMT today.

There will be those who say that this is a huge victory for Iceland since the interest rates in the previous deal was 5,5%. However, the fact that it’s 2 years since the UK and the Dutch paid the Icesave deposit-holders and that this matter has been harmful to Icelandic businesses abroad the cost of waiting is probably high though difficult to calculate.

  1. The big question is now, how much the icelandic state really has to pay. And how much money has been found in the ruins of Landsbanki.
