implement proactivemanagement strategies to address
nonperforming loans, in the corporate aswell as in the
retail lendingportfolio, with the aimof increasing the
recoverable valueof these loans. As youmay already know
frompublications in thePress, AlphaBankwas the first one
among all Greek banks to set up, in associationwith a leading
specialist firm, a unit specialising inmanaging housing and
consumer loans in an effective and socially responsible
manner. In addition, acting jointlywithEurobank and in
associationwith a leadingglobal specialist investment firm,
wewill beprovidingmanagement services for high-value
corporate loans on a trial basis. Through these initiatives,
combinedwith the expected recovery of theGreek Economy,
we seek to create a new framework thatwill ensure the
viability of the solutions thatweplan, inorder to return to
normal conditions of operation and to contribute in a creative
way toour country’s development.

initiatives to assist our fellow citizenswho havebeen affected
by the crisis.
