“To achieve much sought after capital and operational efficiency, banks must optimise between in-house management, outsourced management and third party sale of NPLs. For this to be achievable, lenders require a robust secondary market and a fit-for-purpose credit servicing regime. Establishing the building blocks for success continues across Western Europe, but often at different speeds in different jurisdictions. Where successful, these developments are improving the flow ofthird party capital into the NPL market, driving more competitive pricing and creating a secondary market capable of supporting lenders through-the-cycle. With increased regulatory focus and IFRS 9 becoming a reality, a robust secondary market and credit servicing regime are becoming critically important. Learning from others’ successes and avoiding their failures, must be on the agenda for all those focussed on tackling their NPL issues.”
“Romania remains one of the most attractive and active NPL markets in the CEE region. The level of market activity there remains strong. Markets are becoming more mature with some sellers now focusing on divesting their non-performing as well as their performing non-core assets; however, it is still believed that distressed situations in key European markets have yet to be unlocked.”
CEO & Founder
“Banks have to find the optimum mix between “hold” and “sold” NPL’s, otherwise destroy value for their stakeholders. Just selling NPL’s does not solve NPL’s “per se”.
I expectyear 2018 should be more favorable for the regional buyers who look also from investors’ perspective and work on turnaround of the viable assets.”

“NPLs have been remaining a hot topic in Ukraine for a while but very few foreign investors were present on the local market. Nevertheless, the series of successful reforms implemented in Ukraine recently – such as the reform of the judicial system, implementation of private enforcement service – as well as a fundamental change of DGF’s approach to the sale of NPLs have changed the landscape dramatically and raised the attractiveness of the Ukrainian market for international players.”
Head of Insolvency
Arzinger Law Firm
“Romania is an exciting destination for PE investors, with strong macroeconomic fundamentals doubled by market consolidation in several sectors and a positive outlook. We expect PE funds to increase their activity over the next 12 months, while a good number of suitable targets to be on the market. The M&A market is facing a robust increase with a growing interest for the Romanian companies and a tendency of increasing the average transaction value.”
