The stock of non-performing loans (NPLs) in Spain rose to 83.1 billion euros in the second quarter of this year, its highest level since 2019, according to data from the latest NPL report by Prime Yield, a Gloval Group firm specialising in the valuation of real estate assets and loans for investment funds and banks.

Spain had the second-highest level of NPLs in Europe between April and June 2021, 19% of the total, behind only France, according to data from the European Banking Authority (EBA).

“During the year, non-performing loans appear to have slowed the downward trend of recent years, which was accentuated by the impact of the coronavirus pandemic,” says Prime Yield.

In terms of household exposure, NPLs accounted for 53.9% of aggregate NPLs in Spain during the second quarter of 2021, or €44.8 billion (+2% compared to the same period last year).
