Amsterdam Trade Bank N.V. ("ATB") filed for bankruptcy

On 22 April 2022, Amsterdam Trade Bank N.V. ("ATB") filed for bankruptcy and was declared bankrupt by the Amsterdam District Court. UK and US sanctions have caused operational difficulties, as the majority of ATB's counterparties, including corresponding banks and infrastructure providers, find it difficult to continue supporting ATB. The court has appointed A. van Hees and J.E.P.A. van Hooff as bankruptcy trustees. The deposit guarantee scheme will come into effect as a result of the bankruptcy. Information on the deposit guarantee scheme for ATB can be found at www.dnb.nl. De Nederlandsche Bank (DNB) publishes news about deposit guarantees on its website and in national newspapers. Account holders will receive a letter from DNB shortly. This way, everyone receives information about the procedure for receiving the compensation. If you have a specific question on the deposit guarantee scheme, please contact the DNB Infodesk by telephone at 0800-0201068 (free of charge in the Netherlands) or +31 20 5249111 (from abroad) or by email at info@dnb.nl. The Informationdesk of DNB is open on Saturday 23 and Sunday 24 April from 10:00 till 17:00. From Mondays to Fridays, you can reach DNB between 09:00 and 17:00. If you are a creditor of ATB and you have any other specific questions with regard to the bankruptcy, please contact the bankruptcy trustees’ information desk by email at infoatb@stibbe.com. The trustees will inform the creditors in more detail via this website in the near future. Rob Sebes (+31653547705) is available to answer any questions from the press.
