7 What happened in USA? By 1989, 750 S&Ls were bankrupted due to high NPL ratios. In 1990, RTC was incorporated to purchase S&L’s NPLs. RTC was dissolved in 1995 when its mission was over by selling NPLs to investors (who then consigned servicing to servicers). It is widely believed, that major reason of quick resolution of S&L problem was utilization of private equity funds and servicers who are specialists of investment and collection. Precedent in USA and in Japan
8 What happened in Japan? 12 years since bubble economy burst. In the past 8 years, JPY68 trillion yen (US$523 billion) bad assets were resolved, according to Japanese Government’s statistics. Bulk sale of "Category 4" loans (bankrupted borrowers) started in 1997, then proceeded to bulk sale of "Category 3“. Resolution of "Watch list" borrowers has just started. Since 1998, series of new legislations were promulgated to resolve NPLs, of which Servicer Law is one of the most important. Even today, as much as JPY35.7 trillion (US$275 billion: it is believed to be understated) bad assets are still booked at Japanese banks’ balance sheets. Precedent in USA and in Japan
