Cyprus struck a last-minute bailout deal, aimed at preventing it becoming the first country forced out of the euro.
The deal:
* spares deposits below €100,000;
* Cyprus's second-largest bank, Laiki Bank, closes. Its €4.2bn in deposits over €100,000 to be placed in a "bad bank". Those with deposits less than €100,000 to see their accounts transferred to the Bank of Cyprus. All lenders to Laiki see their investments wiped out, in a first for a eurozone bailout;
* Bank of Cyprus survives, but faces huge restructuring. No bailout money to be used to recapitalise the bank - its shareholders and bondholders to be hit instead. It is thought those with over €100,000 at the bank face losses of around 30%. Getting the bank to healthy EU-mandated capital levels is made harder because Bank of Cyprus inherits a €9bn debt Laiki had with the ECB.

So what does #VINB’s panel think of it all. A good or a bad deal? Expect some very interesting comments tonight …

Vinnie has been up to no good. But now it's back to work and no more nonsense....

that naughty boy !

:D

thing about a corporate run on the banks is if/when it happes ya wont see it

as its all done electronically. when deposits were flooding out of our banks all the big corporations/pensions companies had got out weeks before the grannies started stuffing it in the post office.

i remember when the mexicans took their pensions deposits out of TSB, 10 BILLION.

Nobody not interested had a clue.
