  • Greek deposits may be seized to save banks: FT

    Greek savers could lose at least 30 percent of their bank deposits which could be seized to help shore up the country's banking system as fears grow of financial collapse, the FT reported Saturday. Depositors with over 8,000 euros ($8,900) in the bank may be made to take a "haircut" similar to those taken by Cypriot account holders in 2013, when uninsured funds were seized to stabilise the financial sector, the FT said, quoting bankers and businessmen close to negotiations. Greek banks have been shut since Monday, and the system faces collapse if the ECB declares the banks insolvent should Greece refuse to pay back its debts.

  • Helsinki’s winning Guggenheim choice fails to quell revolt
