Tackling NPLs has been one of the SSM priorities since its set up. NPLs weigh on banks’ balance sheets, impact on their profitability and divert resources from more proactive use. To this end the SSM has developed a comprehensive strategy to tackle NPLs which requires complementary actions from other EU stakeholders. The seminar will present the supervisory actions taken, outline the results achieved so far, and discuss the challenges ahead.
