Sedlabanki Blocked ALMC Payment to Deutsche, Morgunbladid Says

Iceland’s central bank blocked a 10 million-euro ($13.1 million) bond payment from ALMC hf to Deutsche Bank AG (DBK), Morgunbladid newspaper reported today, without saying where it obtained the information.

Sedlabanki will only approve the payment if the Reykjavik- based asset management company, the parent company of Straumur Investment Bank hf, sells 25.6 million euros worth of assets in exchange for kronur, Morgunbladid reported. The central bank’s requirement follows ALMC breaching capital control regulation, according to the newspaper.
