“The transaction has been agreed at 108 million euros or 7.4% of total unpaid principal balance,”, the bank said.


Greek banks have been working to reduce a pile of about 30 billion euros in bad loans, the legacy of a decade-long financial crisis which shrank Greece’s output by a quarter.

The transaction is the third after the securitisation of Galaxy and Cosmos portfolios. It is expected to reduce Alpha Bank’s non-performing exposures by 2.3 percentage points. ($1 = 0.8841 euros)
