Government deposits for securing the NPLs preconceive a solution of seperation between the ‘good’ and ‘bad’  assets of the bank, in the context of the effort to privatise it.

According to nine-month period data from 2017 -since there are no checked accounts for 2017- the ‘good’ bank and the new investors will take on performing loans of worth close to  €4,3 billions and assets of the Cooperative bank of Cyprus along with deposits.
