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.

VIDEO TALK with the prominent international attorney, after meetings at the VZMD’s headquarters - preservation and European perspective of the “Share SUPPORT”, actions against VolksWagen, internationalization of the settlement of expropriated investors in Slovenian banks, significant recovery of costs for truck owners

The prominent Viennese and international attorney, Mr. Eric Breiteneder, founder and owner of the law firm Breiteneder Rechtsanwalt GmbH last week visited Slovenia for business and pleasure at the invitation of President of the PanSlovenian Investors` & Shareholders` Association (VZMD), Mr. Kristjan Verbič. Mr. Breiteneder is a renowned expert in capital markets and protection of investors’ rights, one of the founding members and the communication officer of the International Financial Litigation Network (IFLN), and he also closely collaborates with the American organization The American Association for Justice (AAJ).

 

NATIONAL ASSEMBLY - VZMD at today’s meeting supported by the Committee of the National Council of the Republic of Slovenia, NSi party, European Federation of Investors, civil society as well as with further arguments against the government proposal of the amending act aimed at destroying the “Share SUPPORT” and further expropriations

At 9:00 AM today, at the National Assembly of the Republic of Slovenia the 34th regular meeting of the Finance and Monetary Policy Council of the National Assembly of the Republic of Slovenia began, where the members discussed the Bill on amending Financial Instruments Market Act (ZTFI-G) as well as amendments to the Bill - which were adopted by the Government of the Republic of Slovenia on 5 January 2017 and sent for adoption by way of summary procedure - were brought forward by deputy groups. Apart from the Council members, representatives from PanSlovenian Investors' & Shareholders' Association (VZMD), Securities Market Agency (ATVP) and Ministry of Finance of the Republic of Slovenia were invited to the meeting. “The Government wants to prevent VZMD from collecting shares under the “Share SUPPORT” - allow or forbid the “Share SUPPORT” of VZMD managed by Mr. Kristjan Verbič - this will be, as it seems, one of the focal points of tomorrow’s discussion on the amendment to Financial Instruments Market Act. The Government and ATVP want to step on toes of the “Share SUPPORT”, whereas members of the National Council, Sinteza association and NSi party stood up for it,” was mentioned in the newspaper DELO

 

INSTANT DISMISSAL OF GOVERNOR! - reaffirmation of VZMD’s shocking analyses and statements in regard to the billion-euro “Plunder of the century” during the bank “restructuring” and direct responsibility of the National bank of Slovenia executives for enormous damages to the citizens and the Republic of Slovenia

Following last evening’s news reports on National TV (RTV SLO) which gained data on the transfer of bad (also many good) debts of the NLB bank to the Bank Assets Management Company (DUTB), it has been reaffirmed that, during restructuring and simultaneous expropriation of share and subordinated bond holders in six Slovenian banks using 5 billion euros of taxpayers’ money, numerous outrageous irregularities were uncovered, which also indicate a clearly obvious intent. It follows from the reports on RTV SLO and other media outlets that the Bank of Slovenia required transfers of a number of additional debts including those that were not actually bad - which even had A and B credit ratings just before “findings” were reached at NLB!

 

EXCLUSIVE VIDEO REPORT from the meeting of the Committee of the Slovenian National Council which unanimously took VZMD’s side after facing off with the Securities Market Agency (ATVP) and the Ministry of Finance regarding the disputable Article 25 of the amending act to the Financial Instruments Act

The Committee of the National Council of the Republic of Slovenia for the economy, craft industry, tourism and finance also invited PanSlovenian Investors’ & Shareholders’ Association (VZMD) and representatives of the Securities Market Agency (ATVP) and Ministry of Finance to its 66th meeting. After a lively debate and confrontation of opinions and arguments (VIDEO) between the VZMD President, Mr. Kristjan Verbič, and the ATVP representatives, Mr. Primož Pinoza and Mr. Žiga Kosi, and the Ministry of Finance representative Mr. Aleš Butala, members of the National Council favored the arguments and viewpoints of VZMD and unanimously (8 : 0) signed off the proposal for amendments to the Financial Instruments Act (ZTFI-G), with the exception of the bill or amendments to Article 255 of ZTFI respectively, about which VZMD and the European Federation of Investors and Financial Services Users (Better Finance) - ever since the motion has been filed by the Government of the Republic of Slovenia - have warned that it is expressly in opposition to the Regulation 909/2014 909/2014 of the European Parliament and Council, general Slovenian laws and interests of minority shareholders and investors on the Slovenian capital market.

 

Attempt of the Slovenian Government to block the VZMD's “Share SUPPORT” and incur damage for 117,000 investors through the amending act to ZTFI-G thus opposing the EU regulation - reported by over 200 reputable foreign news media

The open letter recently sent by the European Federation of Investors and Financial Services Users (Better Finance), staunchly supporting VZMD and “Share SUPPORT” in opposing to the government proposal of the amending act to the Financial Instruments Act  (ZTFI-G), was subject to reporting by over 200 European and American news media. On Wednesday, the PanSlovenian Investors' & Shareholders' Association (VZMD) warned about the mentioned problem also via the portal https://vzmd.newswire.com/ designed for informing international audiences and news media.

 

Presenting arguments against the additional amendments to Article 255 of the Financial Instruments Act, aimed solely at disabling the “Share SUPPORT” at VZMD - meeting with NSi party representatives

Individual political parties and deputy groups have responded to the letter of the VZMD President, Mr. Kristjan Verbič, who has sent it last week to the Speaker of the National Assembly of the Republic of Slovenia, presidents of parliamentary parties and leaders of deputy groups containing substantiated warnings and an appeal in view of the Bill on amending Financial Instruments Act  (ZTFI-G). A meeting with representatives of the political party “Nova Slovenija – krščanski demokrati (NSi)”, attended by the leader of the deputy group, Mr. Matej Tonin, the party’s Secretary general, Mr. Robert Ilc, and the President of the Economic Club, Mr. Pavel Reberc, took place yesterday where the attendees listened to the arguments of the PanSlovenian Investors’ & Shareholders’ Association (VZMD) which firmly opposes the amendment to Article 255 of the ZTFI with the additional paragraph 10. The NSi representatives showed their understanding for VZMD’s arguments and made sure that they would thoroughly examine them and state their position in the next meeting of their deputy group.

 

VOLKSWAGEN – in view of the news and investigations in the U.S., even by FBI, VZMD has again invited the investors to take part in the proceedings within the framework of the World Federation of Investors, the International Financial Litigation Network and the European Federation of Investors and Financial Services Users

The World Federation of Investors (WFI), whose active member is also the PanSlovenian Investors’ & Shareholders’ Association (VZMD), has announced news regarding the damages inflicted to investors in Volkswagen. The American Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has arrested an executive of Volkswagen and accused him of conspiracy to defraud the U.S., which implies the intensification of the criminal investigation of fraud committed by the car manufacturer in terms of diesel motor emissions. Mr. Oliver Schmidt, who was the compliance manager for Volkswagen in the U.S. from the summer of 2014 to March 2015, was arrested by the investigators in Florida at the beginning of the month.

 

European Federation of Investors sent out an open letter to members of the National Assembly and the Prime Minister as well as responsible persons at the European Commission - warnings and explicit support for VZMD and the “Share SUPPORT” in opposition to the government’s proposal of the amending act to Financial Instruments Act

Immediately after yesterday’s meeting of the Executive Board, the European Federation of Investors and Financial Services Users (Better Finance) drafted  and sent out an open letter firmly supporting the PanSlovenian Investors` & Shareholders` Association (VZMD) and “Share SUPPORT” in the opposition to the proposal of the amending act to Financial Instruments Act (ZTFI-G), adopted by the Government of the Republic of Slovenia at its session on 5 January and sent for reading to the National Assembly of the Republic of Slovenia by way of summary procedure. The letter from Better Finance was, in addition to the members of the National Assembly, sent out also to the Slovenian Prime Minister, Mr. Miro Cerar, director of the Directorate-General for Financial Stability, Financial Services and Capital Markets Union (FISMA), Mr. Ugo Bassi, and Head of the Securities Markets Unit at FISMA, Mr. Tilman Lueder. In this regard, today Better Finance also sent out a public announcement, which was received besides media and business audience and relevant European and financial institutions, also by the members of the European Parliament.  

 

BRUSSELS – after the Executive Board meeting, also the European Federation of Investors and Financial Services Users staunchly stood up for the Share SUPPORT and VZMD - a letter to members of the National Assembly and Prime Minister of the Republic of Slovenia as well as responsible persons at the European Commission

Brussels was yesterday a venue of the important meeting of the Executive Board of the European Federation of Investors and Financial Services Users (Better Finance), which, in the capacity of a member, - besides representatives of investors’ and shareholders’ associations from Denmark, France, Iceland, Luxembourg, Germany, Spain, Sweden and United Kingdom - was also attended by the VZMD President, Mr. Kristjan Verbič. The central part of the agenda was the medium-term strategy, adoption of the budget including determination of additional financing resources, discussion about the personnel reinforcement and future investors conferences and expertise.
