Company

Debitos history

Debitos was founded by Timur Peters with the idea of combining the concepts of “factoring” and “peer-to-peer lending” and adapting them to the market of non-performing loans (NPLs) as well as enforceable claims. The technical development of the online platform finally started in late 2010 after an intensive exchange with the “Bundesanstalt für Finanzdienstleistungsaufsicht” (Federal Agency for Financial Services Supervision, BaFin) and the German privacy protection authorities. Later in 2010, the venture capital company Paua Ventures invested into Debitos.

In February 2011, the operational beta-phase began and the first transactions were successfully completed soon thereafter.

The official launch of Debitos’ Secondary Debt Market followed in January 2012. During this year, Debitos moved into its new office at Friedrich-Ebert-Anlage 36 in Frankfurt am Main and the further investments by Paua Ventures, RI Digital Ventures, and an Angel Investor enabled the continued growth of the company.

Sellers on Debitos benefit especially from high transaction prices, which are enabled through the unique auction procedure and the continuously growing competition among the registered investors. In 2013, the number of registered investors exceeded 200 companies. The first EUR 20 million portfolio was sold in March 2013 and the total volume of claims offered simultaneously on Debitos marked a new record at EUR 890 million in November 2013. This rapid development illustrates the growing acceptance of Debitos in the corporate landscape, which is why also Otto Capital B.V. placed an equity investment in May 2013.

In the beginning of 2014, Debitos received the certification “Proven Online Portal” by the TÜV Saarland. In February 2014, the first EUR 600 million portfolio was sold via the online platform of Debitos. Moreover, the trading activities focused increasingly on NPLs and bankruptcy claims from banks and financial institutions. Starting in May 2014, Debitos allowed its sellers to trade real estate-secured NPLs. Since more and more deals with debtors from outside of Germany were offered, Debitos attracted an increased interest from international investors. To cater their needs, the English version of the trading platform was launched in November 2014.

In February 2015, the first insolvency claim with a value of EUR 10 million was successfully sold on Debitos. By the end of 2015, the total volume of successfully traded claims on Debitos surpassed EUR 1 billion for the first time.

Debitos further expanded its offer at the beginning of 2016 and opened the secondary market for bankruptcy claims in February that year. Today, more than 1,800 banks and corporates actively use Debitos in order to trade both real estate-secured and unsecured NPLs, enforceable claims, and bankruptcy claims. You can find advantages for selling on Debitos „here“ and for buying on Debitos „here“.

By the year 2017 Debitos starts a year of growth and expansion. Due to the expansion of the team Debitos moved in March 2017 into a larger and more modern office in the TechQuartier in Frankfurt am Main.
