No quick sale of Anglo Irish U.S. portfolio: source
DUBLIN (Reuters) - Anglo Irish Bank ANGIB.UL will not rush through a sale of its portfolio of U.S. commercial real estate loans, a market source said on Friday.
"They will take advice on how to optimize the value of the portfolio. There will not be a quick sale," the source told Reuters.
Earlier a Wall Street Journal report said that the nationalized lender would sell the entire $10 billion portfolio, as early as this month at a discount to face value.
Anglo Irish hired Eastdil Secured LLC this month to advise it on the sale of its U.S. portfolio.
