Secondary debt market Debitos is now cooperating with Haya Real Estate, a Spanish leading independent provider of real estate and debt management services. The company from Madrid will use the infrastructure of the Debitos marketplace to sell non-performing loans. Debitos CEO Timur Peters: “As a result, we are significantly increasing our presence in Spain and Portugal, and through Debitos, Haya reaches many international investors who are interested in buying these kinds of assets. I suppose, this is what you can genuinely call a win-win-situation“, said Timur Peters, CEO of Debitos. The Frankfurt-based finance company has been increasingly active in the Iberian market since autumn 2017. At that time, Debitos announced the establishment of a joint venture with BEKA Finance, a Spanish investment bank which is now also involved in working with Haya.
Haya CEO Carlos Abad: “This agreement will allow us to offer an even more complete service to our clients, besides helping us to reach new market niches and clients.” Carlos Stilianopoulos, CEO of BEKA Finance: “Debitos is an excellent transactional area that allows to obtain liquidity quickly and efficiently.
