While legislators, banks and private sector participants see NPLs as a major problem preventing new investments and leading to economic stagnation, companies active in property management and debt servicing see a lucrative opportunity to invest and do business.
The second annual SEE NPL Forum gathered over 150 leading stakeholders and key regional market participants to exchange practical experiences and insights through a series of interactive panel discussions, confirming the importance of the topic, the investment potential of the NPL market and its significance for economic growth in the region.
Over the last several years the countries of the region have implemented various new strategies for resolving the NPL issue – some with more success than others. Whatever the approach, it is certain that the resolution of the NPL issue remains a high priority and it remains to see what will be next!
