Lord Eatwell presents his opinion on Iceland's macroeconomic position

The Winding-up Board (the „WuB“) is committed to maximizing value for creditors of Glitnir, and asset monetisation (including a potential sale of Glitnir‘s controlling stake in Islandsbanki) is a key component of the declared strategy in achieving this goal.

At an open meeting in London, Tuesday 5 November 2013, Professor Emeritus John Eatwell will present his independent opinion on macroeconomic balances and capital account liberalization in Iceland. The Winding-up Board of Glitnir hf. retained Lord Eatwell as an expert economist last August, for the purposes of an independent macroeconomic review of various issues relating to the Icelandic economy.

The issues in question, among them reports from CBI, IMF and the so called ISK group, are relevant to the proposed restructuring by means of composition of Glitnir hf. and the estates of other insolvent Icelandic financial institutions.
