Swiss newspapers have dubbed him a “banker
Il Messaggero, Milan – Oct 25, 1993.Swiss newspapers have dubbed him a “banker and gentleman”, dedicating several front pages to him. But beyond the flattering portraits, Fabrizio Cerina is indeed a protagonist of a rare case, unique even. He paid back the creditors and clients of Lugano based Attel & Cie, a subsidiary of Attel Finance, 100% of money owed plus interest. Cerina is chairman and controlling shareholder of the bank. He put the company into voluntary liquidation himself. Instead of the short cut of a ‘concordato moratorio’ – which normally involves a repayment to creditors of between 10 and 15% – the investment banker chose the path he calls “more expensive but honorable”. In three successive instalments, he put 45 billion liras at the disposal of the liquidators, needed to cover the hole caused by an employee of the Lugano subsidiary. And last week, less than a year after the beginning of the affair, all customers have been paid back. It is the first time this has happened in the history of Swiss finance, probably in Europe.
“In Switzerland, they were astonished – says Cerina, 40, born in Parma, the head of a group with a net equity of $60 million – but I think I only did my duty.” It should also be considered that full repayment of creditors has had a positive impact on the image of the group, which is actively building stakes in the banking and finance sectors: it is a demonstration of strength, an excellent introduction card for business, and a guarantee of credibility, important especially now that Attel is in full expansion mode.
The bank is involved in numerous ongoing investments and following, with great interest, the privatizations process in Italy. Attel is ready to bid for further stakes in the banking sector, in the belief that “if disposals are being made with a serious intent, there are great opportunities”. The incident has therefore passed without serious damage.
The bomb exploded in September of ’92, when Cerina discovered that one of the directors of the Lugano subsidiary was responsible for creating a substantial financial loss.
The stolen money was used by the employee for reckless investments, all ending badly, in U.S. securities.
