Goirigolzarri considers the public bank proposed by Podemos to be nonsense

El presidente de Bankia, José Ignacio Goirigolzarri, hoy en Murcia


The president of Bankia, José Ignacio Goirigolzarri, considers nonsense the proposal of Podemos to create a public bank "because Spanish taxpayers do not have to pay customers who can not pay back their loans»And says not to know about it in developed countries.

Goirigolzarri pointed out today that Bankia can now be considered a public bank because it is controlled by the State, which owns 61.33 percent, although it states that he has the mandate to develop a professional project that earns money to return taxpayers the aid that this entity has received in recent years.

On the request of Podemos for his dismissal, Goirigolzarri assures that does not care about such request and remember that in 2012 he joined Bankia when he was in a very delicate situation and will remain in the entity if shareholders and the Board of Directors give him their trust.

The president of Bankia has participated today in the Forum Nueva Murcia with a conference in which he analyzed the perspectives of the economy, the financial sector and the entity, underlining the need to "worry about and deal with the reputation of the financial sector."

In this sense, he explained that in order to be solid it must be "profitable and transparent", since if the profitability is below the cost of capital, the system will be a "remmora" to be undercapitalized.

As for the tax of documented legal acts, Goirigolzarri has affirmed that the bank has been "mere spectator" of everything that has happened and that "without eating or drinking it" they have found a very complex issue.

"The only thing we have done before, during and after and at all times has been to scrupulously respect the law", and has stressed the need for clear rules because mortgages are long-term contracts that require legal security.
