The regional NPL market is clearly changing, paving the way for new opportunities, both in terms of types of assets and players getting involved in the various markets. As banks continue to focus on clearing their balance sheets, deal volumes have decreased. However regional NPL market players are still managing to find interesting business opportunities in new markets. Find out how banks plan to offload their remaining bad loans, how the investors see the market developing and which new areas of interest will the future bring. Is the region prepared for the impending recession and another NPL tsunami?

Although the SEE NPL market has undoubtedly changed, regional NPL ratios, are still above the recommended ECB level. Markets such as Albania, Bosnia & Herzegovina and Montenegro are gaining momentum in terms of NPL portfolio sales. Serbia and Croatia are still seeing some major transactions taking place, while Slovenia has set up a good example on how to successfully deleverage distressed assets. Are the most promising deals in the SEE market today the state-held NPL portfolios and how can the true value of these portfolios be determined? Are securitized distressed assets still the most attractive? This panel will look at what the typical NPL portfolio structure looks like today?
