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.

EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT adopted the Shareholder Rights Directive for the stable European economy; SLOVENIAN MINISTRY OF FINANCE introducing a new bill based on the order by the Constitutional Court which is yet another blow for the legal certainty of Slovenia

On Tuesday, the European Parliament adopted a revised Shareholder Rights Directive proposed by the European Commission in 2014 highlighting that the directive came as a result of previous experiences and that for the stable Europe economy the focus should be shifted from delivering short-term returns to long-term success. As it were, the Ministry of Finance of the Republic of Slovenia at the same time introduced a bill on judicial relief granted to holders of qualified bank credit based on the order by the Constitutional Court of the Republic of Slovenia which will be subject to public consultations for 30 days - however, it is quite obvious at the first glance that it is sadly yet another blow for the legal certainty of the expropriated Slovenian investors and their right to efficient remedies - more on this in the next days after a more thorough analysis by VZMD’s expert associates has been conducted.

 

Share SUPPORT with a renewed and a broader range of services for minority shareholders - VZMD's response to the controversial amending act of the ZTFI and the pressures of the financial industry

After the coalition deputies succumbed to the particular interests of the financial industry and confirmed the controversial proposal for the amending act to the Financial Instruments Act (ZTFI-G), the the PanSlovenian Investors` & Shareholders` Association (VZMD) would like to notify shareholders and the general public that the amended ZTFI-G did not block the "Share SUPPORT", despite the obvious motives of those making the proposal; instead, the scope of options available to minority shareholders has increased.

 

VZMD's 'Share SUPPORT' persists despite coalition's support for the controversial amendment to the Act and pressures from the financial industry

 

The National Assembly of the Republic of Slovenia confirmed the proposal for amendments to the Financial Instruments Act (ZTFI-G) at their meeting on 15 February 2017. The two-hour long discussion again - as was the case at the meeting of the Finance and Monetary Policy Committee (VIDEO) and the Committee for the economy, craft industry, tourism and finance (VIDEO) of the National Assembly and the National Council of the Republic of Slovenia - focused only on the disputable Article 25 of ZTFI-G, VZMD's (PanSlovenian Investors` & Shareholders` Association) arguments and proposals, their "Share SUPPORT" and the proposals for its amendments proposed by the government coalition, Slovenian Democratic Party (SDS), United Left (ZL) and New Slovenia (NSi). After voting had taken place it became clear that the coalition deputies succumbed to the narrow interests of the financial industry and the unrestrained greed of the intermediaries and large corporations. A day before the meeting, the VZMD President, Mr. Kristjan Verbič, again addressed a letter to all the deputies with warnings and arguments against the planned legal intervention.

 

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.
