Conclusion of Tracker Enforcement Investigation
30 May 2019
STATEMENT BY PERMANENT TSB GROUP HOLDINGS PLC (PTSBGH)
Permanent TSB plc ("PTSB" or "the Bank") is a wholly owned subsidiary of PTSBGH.
Today the Bank announces that the Central Bank of Ireland (CBI) has concluded its Enforcement Investigation in respect of Tracker Mortgages at PTSB.
The Bank has agreed to pay a fine of €21m. This figure reflects a gross fine of €30m reduced by 30% to €21m in accordance with the early settlement discount scheme provided for in the CBI's Administrative Sanctions Procedure. This agreed settlement now brings the CBI's investigation into Tracker Mortgages at PTSB to a close.
The financial impact of this fine will be a small charge in the 2019 financial accounts as the Bank has made provisions in relation to the overall Tracker Mortgage Programme in prior years.
