Decisions adopted by the Governing Board on 24 April 2007

04/25/2007 / Press release

  1. At today’s meeting the Governing Board of the Bank of Slovenia was briefed with a report on the state of the national housing saving scheme as at 31 December 2006. There were no dissenting comments on the report.
  2. The Governing Board was briefed on the Supreme Court’s final judgement and ruling in the KBT case. This is the final judgement in the actions against the Bank of Slovenia as a result of the bankruptcy of KBT.
  3. The Governing Board amended the regulation on settlements between payment providers. The capital of a clearing house must constantly cover at least 60% of the non-current assets (previously 75%), while the capital and non-current financial and operating liabilities must together cover at least 75% of the non-current and long-term current assets. These amendments give clearing houses greater choice in their sources of financing for investment and development, while the need to meet the aforementioned two criteria ensures that clearing houses maintain appropriate financial stability.
