As a liquidator, the PDIC disposes of various closed bank assets through public biddings and negotiated sales. Proceeds from the liquidation of closed banks' properties are added to the pool of liquid assets of these banks for distribution to uninsured depositors and other creditors subject to the rules on concurrence and preference of credits. The disposal of these assets increases the chances
of recovery of uninsured depositors and creditors of their trapped funds in the closed banks. (PDIC)
