Collectius announces new landmark agreement with Philippine bank for over USD 50M of credit card NPLs
Collectius has forged a new successful partnership with a leading Philippine bank. The bank has sold its non-performing loans worth more than USD 50M to Collectius, vastly improving their liquidity position.
Maintaining their number 1 spot as the preferred debt acquisition partner in the Philippines, the Collectius Philippines branch is now managing over 1.1M accounts worth more than USD 1BN.
Including this deal, Collectius has close to 10 partnerships with leading local banks, international banks and leading consumer financial institutions in the country.
The selling of these non-core assets will further strengthen the bank’s liquidity position. The portfolio comprises of more than 115,000 accounts and the borrowers include individuals who have undertaken credit card loans. In addition to the revenue generated by the sale, the collaboration will also offer cost saving advantages for the selling bank, in particular labour costs.

We have a strong commitment to our “Collectius Way of Collection” which we have further strengthened in solidarity with the Filipino people during these challenging times.”
