NAMA EXPECTS TO recover €500million in assets that debtors attempted to put beyond its reach, according to the institution’s chairman Frank Daly.

He said the agency had already secured charges over some of the assets, which were investments which debtors had moved or given to relatives in an attempt to keep them.

Their recovery is an important step in winning the public’s confidence in the Nama project, Daly said. He told Newstalk radio:

It’s an achievement. It’s important in terms of reassuring taxpayers that we went after tese assets, after these transferred funds, and we got them back.

Daly also said that a new ‘product’ to help home buyers guard against negative equity would be rolled out by Nama within the next two months.

The “deferred consideration initiative” would provide a “buffer” for buyers, whereby the value of their home would be reassessed after five years, he said.
