NPLs worth over €20bn have passed to the Greek servicing companies. The Greek banks have committed to clean up their loan books and are about to sell another 30bn-worth bad debt portfolios, raising the total number to €50bn.
According to Tassos Panoussis, head of the Association of the Servicing Companies, 17 servicers have gained a servicing licence so far. The market is expected to develop rapidly after the implementation of the securitisation scheme, and the replacement of the framework protecting the main residence.
