While the tracker mortgage issue has now largely been dealt with, the banking sector is entering into a new era of more prescriptive regulation from a number of sources including the Central Bank of Ireland, the European Banking Authority, the ECB, and the Single Supervisory Mechanism.

In this climate, banks will no longer hold onto non-performing loans for any extended period of time. Disposal of such loans will be much swifter and more regular in the new landscape and banks will require external support to assist them in this process.
