Cerberus believes it is one of the largest and most experienced investors in non-performing loans (“NPL”) portfolios. Since 1998, our global NPL platform has executed more than 260 NPL transactions with total transaction values in excess of $71 billion.


The Cerberus Team

Our NPL platform consists of approximately 55 tenured and experienced investment professionals with a long and distinguished track record.3 This integrated team works across all stages of an investment’s life cycle, from sourcing and due diligence during the acquisition process, to monitoring of investments throughout the holding period and monetization process.

Cerberus’ seasoned investment professionals, with robust expertise in NPLs and structured transactions, have a vast network of sourcing relationships and strategic partnerships. These professionals have significant experience in multiple sectors through various market cycles, providing for a trusted reputation among financial institutions and in the NPL community.


Leaders in European NPL Investing

Cerberus is one of the leading purchasers of European NPLs since 2013 with an active presence in the United Kingdom and key markets across the continent.

In addition to our global investment team, Cerberus has established Cerberus European Servicing (“CES”), our proprietary in-house servicing platform that gives us a competitive edge to invest in European loans and asset portfolios. CES oversees and works closely with third-party servicers and operating partners to support our acquisitions and execute Cerberus’ underwritten business plans.

By utilizing both internal and external resources, Cerberus is able to establish robust loan servicing practices with local and regional expertise. We believe our commitment to premier servicing has been a crucial component of our ability to be a trusted partner for most of Europe’s leading financial institutions.
