The expeditious conversion and resolution of assets are among the strategic directions outlined in PDIC’s Roadmap. PDIC, as liquidator of closed banks, holds various asset disposal initiatives such as biddings, auctions and negotiated sale. Proceeds from the sale of closed banks’ properties are added to the pool of liquid assets of these banks for distribution to uninsured depositors and other creditors in accordance with the rules on concurrence and preference of credits. The disposal of these assets increases the chances of recovery of uninsured depositors and creditors of their trapped funds.
