Irish Finance Minister Brian Lenihan said

“Detailed information on bondholders of domestic credit institutions’ senior and subordinated debt is not available. Credit institutions, including Anglo Irish Bank, do not have access to comprehensive information on the holders of their senior and junior, or subordinated debt, because such debt is publicly traded and dealt through clearing house systems. Issuers do not have access to the records of those systems and the issuer has no means of establishing the underlying ownership of its bonds at any given time. Unlike in the case of shares, the holders of credit institutions’ senior and subordinated debt instruments are not subject to a disclosure regime.”
