The Council and NPL Markets are pleased to announce a new partnership to target and develop opportunities for sellers and investors of non-performing loans and distressed assets in the Swedish and Nordic markets.

We expect a significant increase of non-performing loans in the region, also as a consequence of Covid-19. This partnership will allow a wide range of financial institutions to increase their productivity using NPL Markets innovative technology for data preparation, valuation and reporting for portfolios of any size and complexity.

Mireille Andersson, Partner at The Council, says: ‘The Council is delighted to cooperate with NPL Markets and to provide to Nordic clients with an innovative digital platform where sellers, buyers and servicing companies can trustfully prepare, value and execute transactions on illiquid portfolios faster than before’.

Gianluca Savelli, CEO & Co-founder at NPL Markets comments: ’The Nordic market is a strategically important market for our Company and our investor base. Teaming up with The Council and leveraging on their extensive knowledge of those markets is allowing our investor base to reach more investment opportunities. Building an environment where buyers and sellers are better connected and can benefit from smarter technology is a core part of our vision for the future’.

The Council is an advisory boutique offering non-performing loan consulting and investment banking services within the Nordic region.

NPL Markets is a FinTech company that enables smart decisions through innovative trading technology, advanced data analytics and provides access to a comprehensive trading ecosystem for non-performing loans and illiquid assets.
