Finance Monthly CFO Awards 2021

F i nance Month l y CFO Awards 2021 Firm Profile doValue is one of the main players in Southern Europe providing services to banks and investors for themanagement of loans and real estate assets. Its assets under management amount to €160 billion in gross book value. The Group extends its scope of activities to performing loans, early arrears, UTP, non-performing loans and real estate assets, and provides ancillary products for business information and master servicing. Current Group structure reflects the organic and external growth and diversification of doValue over 21 years of operations. It was created from a combination, in 2016, of the two largest Italian servicers: UCCMB, originally part of the UniCredit Group, and Italfondiario, active since 2000 in partnership with leading specialized investors both owned by the US private equity firm Fortress. In July 2017, doValue’s share debuted on the Milan stock market, placed with institutional investors. Between 2018 and 2019 doValue experienced a phase of major expansion and significant diversification, first with the entry in the Greek market through being awarded a servicing contract from the four systemic local banks and later in the wider Southern European market, with the acquisition of Altamira Asset Management, a servicer active in Spain, Portugal and Cyprus and a leader in the management of real estate assets. In the Italian market, doValue’s growth continued with the acquisition of new servicing contracts from banks and investors, in particular confirming its leading position as servicer in securitisations assisted by State guarantee (“GACS”). At the end of 2019, doValue announced the acquisition of FPS (now doValue Greece), a Greek servicer with managed assets of over €26 billion, which allowed the Group to become a leader also in the promising Greek market. The completion of the FPS acquisition in June 2020 represents a further step forward in the strengthening of doValue’s leadership in the servicing market in Southern Europe, using an “asset-light” business model that does not require direct investments in portfolios and pursuing increasingly greater diversification in the credit value chain. Since IPO, doValue Group more than doubled it size and achieved greater diversification from one country of operations to five and from selected product offer to the whole value chain of loan management.
