Information to customers and stakeholders of Carnegie Investment Bank AB and Max Matthiessen Holding AB
Press release 11 November 2008
The business within Carnegie Investment Bank and Max Matthiessen continues as usual with the Swedish National Debt Office as new owner.
On November 10 2008 the ownership of Carnegie Investment Bank and Max Matthiessen Holding was transferred from the listed company D. Carnegie & Co to the Swedish National Debt Office. The National Debt Office is the central Government's financial manager. The transfer occurred following the revocation by the Financial Supervisory Authority of Carnegie Investment Bank's licenses to conduct banking and securities business. As a result of the National Debt Office assuming ownership, the company's licenses were reinstated.
The new Government ownership provides sufficient support for Carnegie's commitments. Carnegie's memberships on exchanges and participation in clearing and settlement remain unchanged.
Likewise, Carnegie's legal status and its licences to operate banking and securities business remain unchanged. All agreements entered into with Carnegie are effective and in full force.
- This is a safe and secure solution for Carnegie's all counterparties and stakeholders. We are no long term owners and will sell the business to a new, stable owner that also has a long term ownership ambition. In the meantime, the business within Carnegie Investment Bank and Max Matthiessen continues as usual with a strong owner, says Bo Lundgren, Director General at the Swedish National Debt Office.
