European Debt Sales Report

European Debt Sales

The European debt sales pipeline is strong with EUR 32 bn of ongoing transactions. Bulgaria is lagging behind its regional counterparts. However, this year is expected to see a pick-up driven by regulations and increased interest from international banks to divest problem loans.

European Debt Sales Report

In the 2016 edition of the European debt sales report, KPMG’s Portfolio Solutions Group (PSG) and experts across the European member firms have come together to identify the major trends and key topics of the European bank deleveraging landscape that we think will take centre stage in 2016. We have also analysed how the European loan sale markets performed in 2015, drawing attention to the highlights of the year, and the opportunities to come in 2016.

Key trends

  • REGULATION: How key regulatory developments by European supranational organisations (such as the European Banking Authority (EBA) and the Single Resolution Board (SRB)) will be decisive drivers of strategy for European banks, in particular towards their approach to Risk-Weighted Assets (RWAs). 
  • UK & IRELAND: The changing focus and market landscape of the UK and Ireland loan sale markets as they move further along the deleveraging curve. 
  • HOTSPOTS: What the two hotspots of continental Europe over the past year – Italy and Spain – will have in store for the year ahead as investors grow increasingly interested in these countries, and how legislation passed by their governments will provide both opportunities and challenges. 
  • GREECE AND AUSTRIA: How the ongoing efforts of the Greek and Austrian banking groups to tackle their problem loans will affect the loan sale markets across Central and Eastern Europe via their extensive subsidiary networks. 
  • SECURITISATION: How securitisation may see a revival in Europe as central bankers consider its use as an avenue to reinvigorate bank lending.
