Panel II

Topics

With strong will and state strategies in place, a majority of SEE countries managed to develop NPL markets in the past ten years, resulting in the decrease of NPL rates. As a result, NPL market players, such as servicers and investors with a still strong appetite to invest, moved on to further segmentation of the NPL market and created an effective NPL market ecosystem. The COVID-19 outbreak, and imposed measures completely halted their operations making them think of their survival. When and which type of NPLs can we expect in a new surge?

 

  •  Who will be buying and at what prices?
  • Is this the right time to negotiate the cooperation or future partnerships with the banks?
  • Are there sufficient servicing capabilities available in the SEE market for what is to come?
  • Public policy and its implications on NPL market

Workshop 2

Valuing NPLs

Topics

When discussing the NPL portfolio value perspectives of bank and potential investors differ significantly. Banks believe they can extract more value from portfolios while investors cannot not be sure what is the true quality of assets they contain. Conducting a due diligence, as a way of overcoming the information asymmetry in determining NPL portfolio value, can result in high costs for potential investors. How can both sides find a way to resolve impediments and find mutually satisfactory solutions will be the topic of discussion for our experts.
