2019: A sunnier outlook for international China NPL investors

November 2018

China's non-performing loan (NPL) market is growing and foreign investors are becoming more active.

The China Banking and Insurance Regulatory Commission's increased pressure on banks to recognise and resolve their NPLs is pushing NPL supply in the market and has created more opportunities for foreign investors. Over the last 18 months, they have invested US$1.5 billion in portfolios in China.

This report examines foreign investments in China's NPL market and includes statistics on market size and growth, foreign investor transactions, and advice for international investors on closing deals in this space.
