Axactor is addressing a large non-performing loan (NPL) market in Europe. The market is estimated to around EUR 1.5 trillion and with a solid growth rate. The main growth factors are partly driven by regulatory changes, sales of non-performing loans and an accelerating trend of outsourcing debt collection to specialized companies. Furthermore, we see a consolidation trend in the debt collection/debt purchase industry. Axactor's main focus in the credit management value chain will be: amicable and legal collection, surveillance and acquisition of NPLs.
