CAPE TOWN - Embattled VBS Mutual Bank will be overseen by SizweNtsalubaGobodo (SNG) Director Anoosh Rooplal who will represent the retail bank after its recent financial woes. 

The retail bank which was placed under curatorship by the South African Reserve Bank (Sarb), has experienced grave financial constraint over the last 18 months. 

Subsequently, Sarb stepped in and placed advisory firm SNG in charge of the troubled bank. 

According to Sarb, placing VBS under curatorship will allow Sarb the means to implement a resolution plan.
