Debt Purchase

Sell your claim at market conditions, or enter into an option agreement.

Selling your claim has the advantage that cash is received quickly. Downside of selling your claim is that claims against political risk countries are usually rated very low on the secondary market.

If a client does not wish to sell its claim at market value, East-West Debt and the client can agree to enter into an option agreement. This option gives us the exclusive right to purchase the claim at an agreed percentage within a certain timeframe. During this timeframe, we will explore the possibilities to recover the claim at the percentage the client wishes to receive. The advantages of such an option agreement are:

  • The client remains owner of the claim during the term of the option.
  • The client might achieve a higher percentage instead of the minimal secondary market price.
