About us

Hoist Finance is a trusted debt resolution partner to banks, individuals and smaller companies, currently operating in thirteen European countries with 1,300 employees and is listed on Nasdaq Stockholm since 2015.

Hoist Finance was founded in 1994 and with over 25 years of experience, we have become one of the leading debt management companies in Europe. We purchase non-performing loans (NPL) from our partners, international banks and financial institutions. After purchasing a portfolio, we do the utmost to come to amicable arrangements with our customers, setting up sustainable repayment plans. Apart from helping people getting back on track financially, this also contributes to upholding a sustainable, fair and stable credit market since we help banks to offload their balance sheet so that they can free up resources for their respective core business and meet their regulatory requirements.

With Hoist Finance’s more than 25 years of experience in acquisition and management of loan portfolios, and with our regulated credit market company status, selling banks can be sure that we can meet stringent quality requirements. Hoist Finance’s partners are Europe’s major banks and financial institutions. Over the years we have done business with many of Europe’s largest banks. Several of these are among Hoist Finance’s most important partners. One of our success factors has been offering flexible solutions and the capacity to manage complex acquisitions.

Our role in society

Financial inclusion is a growing pan-European challenge. Already before the pandemic, one third of European households were considered financially fragile and unable to meet unexpected expenses. When you are financially excluded, you often have no access to affordable financial services and it can therefore be challenging to build a credit record, open a savings account, meet unexpected changes, and even gaining an employment or a rental lease. Hoist Finance contributes to a healthy financial ecosystem by helping customers to get out of bad debt through customised support.
