Great to see NPL Markets’ insight on the outlook for UK non performing loans being shared in a Daily Telegraph comment, “Get Ready for the weirdest recession in history” by Jeremy Warner published last week.
Burkhard Heppe’s latest views on the UK non performing loan market are included in the article alongside comments from Charlie Niunn, CEO of Lloyds and the Bank of England.
