Ulster Bank Sells Personal Guarantees

Ulster Bank Group’s internal bad bank is working on plans to sell off personal guarantees given by property investors and developers. The personal guarantees to be sold on are expected to relate to about 300 individuals. The decision to sell personal guarantees to a hedge fund or private equity investor has been taken by the special liquidators of Irish Bank Resolution Corporation Limited. According to Sunday Business Post, Ulster Bank declined to comment.

Ulster Bank Reports Earnings Results for the Year 2014

Ulster Bank made an operating profit of £606 million (EUR 752 million) in 2014. This compares with a loss in the previous year of £1.6 billion. The bank's profit before impairment losses was £241 million, £76 million higher than in 2013. Its total income declined to £830 million from £859 million in 2013 in spite of its return to the black. The bank said this was largely a result of the "non-recurrence of significant hedging gains on the mortgage portfolio in 2013".
