Why non-performing loans are still putting the European Banking Union at risk

Corrado Macchiarelli, Renato Giacon, Andromachi Georgosouli and Mara Monti, (2019), «Why non-performing loans are still putting the European Banking Union at risk», LSE EUROPP, 27 Μαρτίου

Non-Performing Loan (NPL) ratios in countries like Italy, Portugal and Spain have started to decrease sharply, but as Corrado Macchiarelli, Renato Giacon, Andromachi Georgosouli and Mara Monti write, this has received relatively little media attention in comparison to previous fears over the accumulation of NPLs in the EU. They explain that despite the lack of headlines about NPLs, one should not be too quick to draw the conclusion that they are no longer a critical issue for the EU’s future financial architecture. There are several reasons to keep a close eye on NPL policy management and legal developments both at the EU level as well as at the level of existing member states and potential future members in the Eastern periphery.
