European Central Bank headquarter in Frankfurt

ROME (Reuters) – The European Central Bank’s worst-case scenario of non-performing loans at EU banks reaching 1.4 trillion euros ($1.70 trillion) at the end of pandemic “is less likely to occur”, a member of its Single Supervisory Board told Il Sole 24 Ore.

Elizabeth McCaul also told the paper in an interview published on Tuesday that Italian banks had made “formidable” progress in reducing their impaired loans.
