The “Metamorphosis” will be the common thread of the 11th Edition of the Credit Village Day, that will be held on November 22, at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Milan.
I will be myself the testimonial of the metamorphosis: I will be the Chairman of this event as a Journalist, specialised in this industry and not as the Executive of an important international banking group
Metamorphosis, is a word evoking contrasting feelings: problematic feelings if we think about the Kafka’s poetry or positive feelings if we think about the metaphorical symbolism of the caterpillar and the butterfly.
Crisis, Change, Opportunity, Evolution…Metamorphosis. Every year significant developments occur in the credit management industry and the Credit Village Day represents the occasion to discuss and develop a better knowledge of all these changes.
The Credit Village Day, more than 1.000 attendees last year, will enable us to understand what will happen in the next future in the debt collection management industry: whether the caterpillar will become a butterfly or the man will become a cockroach.
All sizes Servicing Companies, Originators, Investors, Debt Buyers, Consumer Associations, Journalists will meet at the Credit Village Day to talk about their projects and their experiences.
There will be an interesting debate with a strong participation from the all the attendees (also via Twitter).
We will investigate the Metamorphosis, not only the one characterising the credit industry, but also the one affecting debt collection management companies, which, in recent years, experienced progressive changes in their perspectives, their needs and their strategies.
This metamorphosis has been strongly influecing by Npls and by the complicated business related to their dismissal from Originators wishing (and/ or needing) to lighten their balance sheets and starting considering the important reputational risk associated with a bad debt collection management.
We will interview key players of this industry in order to understand if the entrance in this sector of international investors will influence this industry, or if this change will be seen by the market as a new opportunity. In addition to this, we will try to understand if the changes undergoing will affect also servicing companies which have been working for decades on non performing exposures called Unlikely to Pay (UTP)
We will understand whether and how Servicing companies are preparing for the entering the Public Administration market, a new and important market, so far understimated, but which, in reality, could represents itself an interesting and profitable alternative to the NPL market.
We will also tackle the theme of the subcontract, that, nowadays, is becoming an element increasingly important in servicing agreements. We will involve also Consumer Associations regarding the themes of “reputation” and “good practices” and we will understand how important are these subjects also for Originators.
We will also listen to SMEs’s point of view, which, in different ways, play a strategic role in this industry, even if, very often, they do not emerge as a protagonist remaining behind the scenes.
This scenario has always been a part of my professional career, as the Executive of an important international banking group, but nowadays it seems to me more fascinating and exciting, in this new clothes of Journalist and Chairman of the event, where I will have the opportunity to raise awareness about the positions and the ideas of all the key players of this sector.
Leaving my institutional clothes, I will do my best to create an interesting debate over new topics that will characterise the next future of this industry, such as for example, the one related to the “debtor’s pre- emptive right” in the Npls’ dismissals, a right that could deeply revolutionize debt transfer dynamics and debt collection processes.
The Credit Villlage Day will be a day of intense networking, discussion and debate amongst all the different actors of this sector, which play different roles within an industry more and more articulate and in costant evolution.
