About investo.si

investo.si was established as one of the central resources of information concerning possibilities and advantages of investments and business activities in Slovenia. We decided to connect foreign investors with Slovenian business environment and in long term offer them close-up information about their investments in this environment, information about new possibilities for growth or offer them information if there is any kind of risk that their invested capital needs a protection.

On the portal you can find not only direct information about investments, but users can also share their opinions and experiences. Our goal is to enhance two-way communication, not only to offer information about investments, but also to get us a mirror in which we can see where we are, how we look in eyes of foreign investors and based on all that, we can force our compass into the right direction - to improve our work and cooperation.

VIDEOS & DOCUMENTS from the VZMD's press conference - Bill on regulating the status of expropriated investors in Slovenian banks

Tuesday's ruling of the European Court of Justice in Luxembourg explicitly indicated that legal wrangles and consequences arising from the controversial amendment of the Banking Act (ZBan-1L) should be resolved within the Slovenian judicial system. With the Bill on regulating the status of expropriated investors in Slovenian banks the PanSlovenian Investors' & Shareholders' Association (VZMD) endeavors to spark off and actualize the debate on the approaches for a constructive elimination of consequences of the expropriation of over 100,000 citizens (with no compensation at all) during the complete nationalization of six Slovenian banks.

VZMD's bill does not provide for any burdening of the state budget or taxpayers - the situation of the expropriated investors should be regulated by issuing bonds through Bank Assets Management Company (BAMC). Such regulation of the situation involves an incremental approach and decreases the liquidity pressure, while simultaneously linking the payments to the actual (successful) continuous business operations of the banks and BAMC.

 

European Court of Justice in Luxembourg has ruled in favor of investors expropriated during the nationalization of six Slovenian banks in 2013

With today’s ruling, the European Court of Justice has answered seven questions of the Slovenian Constitutional Court posed during the constitutional review of the amendment of the Banking Act (ZBan-1L). Here is the crucial answer to the first question and the fact that the European Court of Justice has definitively resolved the issue of the legal nature of the European Commission's Banking Communication as of August 1, 2013, which - as maintained by the PanSlovenian Investors` & Shareholders` Association (VZMD) since the very beginning - is not binding for the EU Member States.

 

POLICE SEARCHES OF BANK OF SLOVENIA – Yesterday’s searches of the premises of the Bank of Slovenia and NLB serve to validate the severity of the allegations in the criminal complaint and the notification of a suspicion of a criminal act that VZMD filed with the Specialized Office of the State Prosecutor.

Yesterday Slovenian criminal police conducted a pre-criminal investigation of the Slovenia’s Central Bank (the Bank of Slovenia) and the largest Slovenian bank, NLB, d.d., along with their consultants, Ernest & Young and Deloitte.  The police collected evidence regarding possible wrongdoing of the banks as part of the bank bail-in in which all the shareholders and subordinated bondholders, including retail investors, were entirely wiped out in six Slovenian banks in December 2013.

VZMD is re-publishing the criminal complaint it filed on March 6, 2015, which alleged criminal offenses of abuse of office or official duties according to Paragraph 3 in connection with Paragraph 5 of Article 257 of the KZ-1 with Article 20 of the KZ-1 or malfeasance in office according to Article 258 of the KZ-1 in connection with Article 20 of the KZ-1.  The criminal complaint was filed at the Specialized Office of the State Prosecutor against the Governor and Vice Governors of the Bank of Slovenia.

EXCLUSIVE VIDEO REPORT of visiting families who staged a spontaneous mass demonstration at the blockaded Port of Koper – working towards temporary restoration of the port’s operations along with aspiring to calm down the volatile situation

KOPER, SLOVENIA.  Families and supporters of Port of Koper employees who had blocked the entrance to the port for three days staged a peaceful protest at the port’s entrance gates on Sunday (the traditional family day in Slovenia). Around 1,000 employees blockaded the port on Friday morning - before the General meeting of the Port of Koper (Luka Koper) at which the government-controlled Slovenian Sovereign Holding (SDH), the Port of Koper’s majority shareholder, revoked its request for replacement of three of the Port of Koper’s Supervisory board members. The request had been a point of contention because the Port of Koper has a two-tiered board composed of a Supervisory Board and a Management Board. Supervisory Board members have the power to elect or fire members of the Management Board.

In his speech, he stressed the catastrophic management by the government of the public property of the Republic of Slovenia and all of its citizens, pointed out minority shareholder problems in advance of Friday’s meeting and called for sanctioning of the persons responsible in his speech.

 

EUROPEAN CENTRAL BANK - official letter by the Slovenian MEP about serious issues regarding the unjustified calculations on which the expropriations and nationalization of all Slovenian systemic banks were based - again no actual answer!

The PanSlovenian Shareholders` Association (VZMD) welcomes the important letter by the Member of the European Parliament, Ms. Romana Tomc, addressed to Ms. Danièle Nouy, the Chair of the Supervisory Board at the European Central Bank (ECB). In her letter, the Slovenian MEP asked for an explanation as to why in the bank stress test performed by the ECB in October 2014 the projections for the Slovenian banks NKBM and NLB for the end of 2014 - i.e. only two months after the performed test - undervalued the actual state by more than a half. Ms. Romana Tomc, MEP, also asked for an explanation as to why the Chair Nouy in a recent interview for the Slovenian Press Agency (STA) praised these results, even though their inaccuracy must have been known to her by then, and why she presented them as a “confirmation” of the Bank of Slovenia’s calculations on the basis of which the latter keeps defending the cancellation of all shares and subordinated bonds in all Slovenian systemic banks.
