FGDB is the major creditor of BIR (78.90% of creditors’ claims), while at Banca “Columna” SA it holds a very small quota of the total creditors’ claims (0.04%).

FGDB’s quality as creditor ceased at five failed banks as a result of the full recovery of its claims either through the distributions made during liquidation (in 2004 at BRS and in 2011 at BTR) or by assignment (in 2007 at Nova Bank SA), as well as of the closing of the bankruptcy proceedings (in 2012 at Banca Comercială „Albina” SA and in 2019 at Bankcoop SA).

Until March 31, 2021, FGDB has recovered claims amounting to RON 183.61 million, corresponding to a recovery ratio of 35.77%.
