Join SCI for the 3rd Annual NPL Securitisation Seminar

SCI's 3rd Annual NPL Securitisation Seminar, kindly hosted by Orrick, will take place in Milan, the heart of the global NPL sector. This unique seminar - the only event in the industry dedicated to discussion around securitisation of NPLs - an opportunity for key investors, issuers and service suppliers to gather and add depth to discussions around European NPL portfolios, the regulatory treatments of such securitisations and the benefits of this technology as an exit mechanism.

The volume of non-performing loans on European bank balance sheets is expected to increase due to Covid-19 stress and securitisation is recognised by policymakers as key to enabling these assets to be disposed of. SCI’s NPL Securitisation Seminar explores the impact of the coronavirus fallout on performance and issuance, as well as on pricing assumptions, servicing and workout trends across the European market. Together with recent regulatory developments, the event also examines the establishment of an asset protection scheme in Greece and the emergence of Spanish NPL ABS.
