Brussels Says ‘No’ To The Creation Of A Bad Bank

The European Commission is concerned about the management of NPLs after the impact of the pandemic and the economic slowdown in the Q4. However, Brussels is reluctant to create a bad bank, mainly because of the high costs of creating a European agency to manage these assets. Instead, the EC proposes to reform the insolvency and debt recovery regime, with the aim of unifying legislation at European level. At the same time, making it easier for banks to get rid of doubtful assets on their balance sheets.
