The risk potential of non-performing loans (NPL) for European financial stability has increased significantly with the corona crisis. In December, the EU Commission therefore formulated its current strategy for reducing NPLs in an action plan, with which the banking sector, as a provider of finance for private households and companies, is to be protected from system-endangering default risks. The four central starting points of the EU Action Plan are the establishment of national bad banks, the creation of new, harmonized rules for insolvencies or to secure the assets, the expansion of a European NPL secondary market and the use of state aid to support companies.

This gives rise to numerous questions for market participants: How much will the Corona crisis affect the real economy in Europe and which sectors are particularly affected? How sensible are government support measures for troubled companies in this situation? In what way should trading and settlement platforms and the harmonization of insolvency law in Europe take place specifically and what progress can be expected here? And what can financial regulators, banks and the NPL industry do to complement the planned NPL reduction measures in a meaningful way?

Against this background, the NPL FORUM provides an up-to-date overview of macroeconomic scenarios and discusses important questions of regulation, supervision and bank strategy. Traditional focal points of the conference day are European aspects of financial stability, future topics of the lending business and innovative approaches to the management of badly performing loans.

Since its launch in 2006, the NPL FORUM has become a high-level annual information and exchange forumEstablished for specialists and executives in the financial sector, for servicers & investors and for scientists. The program ranges from exciting keynotes by high-ranking speakers from the banking sector, supervisory institutions and science to expert panels on legal requirements, technological innovations and new management aspects in the credit and NPL process.

The NPL FORUM is organized by Frankfurt School Verlag in cooperation with the Frankfurt School of Finance & Management and the Bundesvereinigung Kreditankauf und Servicing e. V. (BKS). In addition to the latest specialist information, the conference participants have the opportunity to exchange ideas with other industry participants. We look forward to interesting, stimulating specialist discussions and talks.
