The 2018 SEE NPL Forum will look at the what is coming next in the SEE NPL market? The focus of NPL market players is shifting as deal volumes and transaction pipelines slow down. Instead of looking for high profile portfolio disposals, investor focus is emerging in the areas such as retail mortgages, the development of secondary markets and setting up regional servicing platforms. Additionally, as bank consolidation across the region continues, preventative measures for the in-house management of problematic assets have gained importance along with financial and corporate restructuring initiatives. What does this mean for the SEE NPL market? Will we continue to see big portfolio transactions and what types of asset classes are the next hot investments? There is much that remains to be done in the countries of South East Europe to resolve the NPL issue and to work towards effective prevention.
