Banks that are weighed down by non-performing assets find it hard to attract new capital for new lending; they must make provisions for the risk of losses and regulators require more capital to be set aside by banks as a buffer for the risk that losses will crystallise and threaten the banks’ solvency.

Banks, borrowers and the economies in which the banks operate, are all worse off as a consequence because their traditional suppliers of credit are prevented from lending.

Banks can deal with these non-performing loans in a number of ways,  via a bank workout, special purpose vehicles set up to manage the assets off balance sheet, or packaging assets into securitisations. 

At Capita we provide a comprehensive range of services whatever the preferred option. We are the market leader in European distressed debt administration and servicing. We provide expert support throughout the entire loan lifecycle, delivered by teams in the UK, Ireland and continental Europe.

This enables us to help banks create liquidity and unlock capital for reinvestment in other value adding lending activity benefitting the economy more broadly.
