English translation:millions of euros of doubtfully-secured loans; millions of euros of loans with doubtful cover
Explanation:
επισφαλείς can also be rendered ‘precarious(ly)’ here but that has less of a financial/legal ring to it.

Slightly more colloquially, you can say “millions of euros’ worth of loans”, but this usage is more found in journalism than legal documents.

Or, "loans with millions of euros of doubtful cover" — if the meaning (as the Greek syntax suggests) is that other parts of the cover offered for the same loans are not so unreliable.
