Banks have to wait for growth to pick up before NPLs begin to drop

By Stelios Orphanides

Banks would have to wait for some time to pass before their non-performing loan ratio fell to more acceptable levels, the Central Bank of Cyprus spokeswoman said today.

“International experience suggests that the course of non-performing loans peaks a year or two after a financial crisis and it then takes some time until a substantial decline in the ratio begins,” central bank spokeswoman Aliki Stylianou said in a written statement.
