Business recovery services
Non-Performing Loans (NPLs)
While the problem of China's non-performing loans (“NPL”) is well-known, understanding what to do to find the hidden value in pricing or servicing such loans is less so. Whether you need help managing portfolio sales, loan portfolio due diligence, valuation and pricing, transaction structuring or post deal loan servicing, we’re on hand to help you make informed decisions and maximise value.
When it comes to NPL issues, PwC is one of the leading firms in China with the experience to help you with the loan recovery process. Our people have been working on NPL assignments in China since 2000. The depth and breadth of our experience gives us unique insights into the loan valuation process that really help when it comes to portfolio evaluations and pricing discussions.
