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

the credit management value chain will be: amicable and legal

collection, surveillance and acquisition of NPLs.
