Investors’ Conference on Italian & European NPLs

Date: November 22, 2016
Venue: Milan, Italy
Organiser: IMN

Italy’s current stock of bad loans now totals a staggering 200 billion Euro outstanding. The government, along with the private financial sector, have teamed up to deliver a number of creative solutions to help reform and stabilise Italy’s banking sector. 

One such solution is the sale and subsequent securitisation of portfolios of non-performing loans, aimed at helping to re-capitalise banks and reduce the country’s huge stock of bad loans. However, questions still remain as to how the fund set up to buy these non-performing loans will be financed. Is a private bond market issue in the works? Will the country’s largest financial institutions be tasked with providing the capital? Can this scheme be applied to other European countries whose banks face similar challenges? If so, which countries are most likely to launch their own programs and when? 

This one day conference set in Milan, Italy’s center of finance, will address these questions and much more.
