Fund Management firm, Databank, will reopen its independent branches today, Tuesday, January 10, 2023, following a shutdown on December 22 resulting from physical and verbal attacks on its staff by some clients.
The staff of the fund management company have been working remotely and engaging clients on digital platforms since the closure, but the company in an e-mail and text message to its clients on Saturday, January 7, 2023, said it “will apply a phased approach to re-opening” its physical locations.

The company in an email to its clients last December revealed that it had been affected by the liquidity challenges that have rocked the fund management industry owing to the “macro-economic crisis” facing the country.
It said the crisis had resulted in the company’s inability to pay withdrawal requests and impacted its original two-week estimate for withdrawals.
