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.

ANOTHER POORLY FORETHOUGHT NATIONALIZATION – a new amending act of Book Entry Securities Act to introduce another state controller, additional “debauchery” of Takeovers Act and unequal treatment of all other shareholders in Slovenia – VZMD: forsaken shares should belong to their issuers

On Saturday, the deadline for submitting comments on  the Bill on amending Book Entry Securities Act(ZNVP-1A) expired. Therefore, on Friday, the PanSlovenian Investors` & Shareholders` Association (VZMD) President, Mr. Kristjan Verbič, responded to the letter and positions, delivered to the Prime Minister of the Republic of Slovenia, the Ministry of Finance and the National Assembly of the Republic of Slovenia by the civil front »Primorska has risen«, Coastal trade union organization KS90, Trade union of crane operators of marine activities, Trade union of port workers of Slovenia OSO KS90, and »Puntarji (Rebels)« movement.

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.
