Capital Markets Union and Banking Union: Member States agree to negotiate new measures against build-up of non-performing loans

Member States agreed yesterday to start inter-institutional negotiations on new rules aimed at increasing the efficiency of collateral enforcement in the banking union. Such measures purport to prevent the future build-up of non-performing loans (NPLs), while maintaining a high level of borrower protection.
