The bank had 18 3000 deposit accounts at the time and 17 750 were transferred to Nedbank (Valued at R260 Million). The bank’s deposit clients included burial societies, stokvels and savings clubs.

Due to the intervention of the SARB an arrangement was put in place whereby clients of the liquidated bank could withdraw up to R100 000. Anything over and above this amount will not be able to be claimed unfortunately for those few accounts where they had higher balances.

Before July

Depositors have been given until 8 July 2021 to withdraw their funds from Nedbank branches.
