In a recent interview with the Italian finance news website FinanceCommunity.it and their newsletter MAG, Country Manager for Lindorff Italy, Antonella Pagano speaks about her ambitions for Lindorff in Italy.
Under the heading "Pagano to head Lindorff to conquer Italian NPLs", she states that she wants to make Lindorff one of the top-three players in the Italian market for non-performing loans (NPLs) within the next 3-5 years.
When asked why she thinks Lindorff will be able to do this, as a new player in a highly competitive market, she points to Lindorff's strong track-record in the financial services industry across Europe, the 360-degree view on the market, and the balanced business model. She states clearly that Lindorff will not just buy portfolios, but will work with banks and other industries in offering third-party debt collection service-solutions and partnerships. She does not rule out further acquisitions following the take-over of Milan-based Cross Factor earlier this year.
- Italy is an important new market for Lindorff, being the biggest market for non-performing loans in Europe. We have set ambitious targets, and with Antonella Pagano at the helm we are satisfied that we will reach those. While at her previous employer PwC, she was one of the experts on NPLs in the community, and I am happy to see that she is utilizing her position to further increase awareness of Lindorff as a player in the Italian market, says Klaus-Anders Nysteen, CEO of Lindorff Group
