SEE NPL Forum Vol.7 was held in a hybrid format on November 17th, 2023. The Forum gathered more than 260 onsite and online key industry stakeholders from 12 countries. The audience enjoyed the diverse panel discussions and Spotlight Discussions and also used the opportunity to extend existing professional networks.
The Forum delved into the current state of the regional NPL market, offering a macro-level overview of economic and financial trends, along with the latest regulatory developments in the EU and SEE. Furthermore, the Forum explored the ramifications of high-interest rates and inflation on the broader NPL market ecosystem, encompassing investors, servicers, regulators, valuations, and real estate (collateral). A distinctive feature of the conference was three Spotlight Discussions, focusing on the influence of Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) requirements on lending activities, the significance of accounts receivable insurance, and the regulatory aspects of the NPL servicer industry.
At the core of the Forum’s mission is the aim to cultivate a more robust community of industry professionals in Southeast Europe, fostering the exchange of opinions, knowledge, best practices, and experiences. This collaborative effort contributes to the ongoing development of this region’s NPL & Financial Markets ecosystem.
We would like to express a special gratitude to the representatives of the Ministry of Finance of the Republic of Serbia, the National Bank of Serbia, and the Croatian National Bank.
