Loan portfolio markets continue to soar

The sixth edition of our Global Deleveraging report examines key loan sales markets across Europe and in emerging markets. The report provides an up-to-date overview of the latest transactions supported by forward-looking insights provided by our Portfolio Lead Advisory Services experts, investors and clients.

Overview

The European loan portfolio market accelerated in the second half of 2017 after a relatively slow first half. Although just over €40 billion of deals completed by mid-2017, the full year total reached €144 billion exceeding deal levels in both 2015 and 2016.

Whilst the global loan portfolio market has been geographically centred on Europe over the last few years, as investors start to look for new opportunities to deploy capital it is clear that emerging markets in Asia and Brazil are also now firmly on the investment radar.
