Insolvency of Anglo Austrian AAB AG (formerly Meinl Bank AG)
Update: March, 21st 2020

On March 2nd, 2020, the Commercial Court of Vienna opened insolvency proceedings on the assets of Anglo Austrian AAB AG (hereinafter "AAB"). As a result, depositors no longer have access to the accounts held for them.

Pursuant to Section 9 of the Austrian Deposit Guarantee and Investor Compensation Act (ESAEG), a payout event was triggered.

As the competent deposit guarantee and investor compensation scheme, we protect the claims of AAB's customers within the framework of the statutory provisions. Deposits of up to 100,000 EUR and investor compensation claims of up to 20,000 EUR per customer are covered. We are committed to a smooth payout.

Deposits with AAB which we cannot compensate fully or - due to the legal maximum compensation limit - only proportionately can possibly be claimed in insolvency proceedings (HG Wien, GZ 5S29/20d).
