Daleko’s powers at the NBU
The responsibilities of the new Head of the Problem Assets Management Office include:
- working with the Deposit Guarantee Fund to recover debts on refinancing loans at the expense of the mortgaged property of bankrupt banks;
- organizing and controlling the recovery of mortgaged property;
- organizing and supporting the sale of the NBU's own and mortgaged property;
- controlling the work of the liquidators of banks that had gone bankrupt before the Deposit Guarantee Fund was established.
Context. On June 30, the NBU was shaken by a personnel scandal. The entire leadership of the Licensing Department announced that they are leaving the National Bank, since, in their opinion, the NBU Governor, Kyrylo Shevchenko, is harshly centralizing the management of the regulator. However, the employees later agreed that they would leave their positions only in the beginning of autumn. At the same time, following the Licensing Department, several more high-ranking officials, including the Director of the Financial Stability Department, expressed their desire to leave the NBU.
Meanwhile, on July 11, the penultimate of the senior managers of the times of Hontareva and Smolii left the NBU. Dmytro Solohub left the post of Deputy Governor of the NBU and moved to work at the International Monetary Fund.
