In our monthly look at the results of our recovery efforts we learned that The average recovery rates across all countries in 2014 and 2015 was relatively unchanged. However, even if 2016 falls from its current average of 60%, relative to the 2014 and 2015 averages of 42% and 44% respectively, we’re still unlikely to see a yearly downtrend in recoveries.
