    So is the MinFin out of hospital then or is this announced by Blackberry?

    Who will be on the Board of the SPV?

    This bit is amusing -

    Have the professional advisors been officially announced yet?

    I know they've been appointed, and who got what, but is it in the official domain yet?

    Well i am wondering what's the main function of the NAMA board and would they publish it re their minutes as it's our taxpayer's money?

    Define what's their role and function of SCAMA board director's? Do they have a say in SPV's? (Special Purpose Vehicle)

    Will they submit to Auditor general re their accounts?

    Not sure if there was a queue to join NAMA board as seems like a poisoned chalice.

    Lots of accountants on the board. I suppose its better than outright bankers.

    It is good that Daly is stepping down from Anglo as would be clear conflict of interest. Debatable if still a conflict of interest...

    Stephen Seelig is a pretty heavyweight appointment- both in practice & academia he is well respected on the matter of "bad banks"

    It is good to see a global bruiser like him on the board

    Also in general it is to be welcomed that the board members are genuine experts - not politicians/social partners/ex attorney's general/social partners/normal cadre of fools who foul up semi-state boards. Indeed the board would compare well to private sector boards.

    I can only see eight members in this press release. Bit tough following it as it's VERY badly written. Trying to reformat my OP presently.

    Wouldn't the chief executive of the NTMA and the chief executive of NAMA be two separate people?
    Nothing will motivate the lazy / apathetic / Americanised / west-British types to embrace their culture and the Irish language.

    So the chief executive of NAMA isn't named yet?

    It's on the same line as John Corrigan so suggests it's the same person.

    So where the Minister for Finance has announced the names of the nine members of NAMA, he's only named eight?
