On March 25 Cyprus and the Troika agreed on a €10 billion bailout which featured an unprecedented haircut on uninsured deposits in a bid to recapitalize Bank of Cyprus, the island’s largest lender. The bailout also provided that Cyprus Popular Bank, the island’s second largest bank would be wound down with its good part absorbed by Bank of Cyprus.
