Our markets have different traditions for providing financial services, different legislative frameworks and different attitudes with respect to debt and repayment patterns. As a result, Hoist Finance has tailor-made approaches for each market, but all are based on the same humane foundation.
Since we are already present in the main European non-performing loans (NPLs) markets, our strategy is to grow and develop our presence in these markets. A key element of this strategy is our expansion into new asset classes. This allows us to open up new and profitable purchasing opportunities while benefiting from the extensive knowledge and expertise in our local operations. This also gives us the possibility to strengthen our core business relationships with banks and financial institutions that we have successfully established over many years.

The French market is still less mature compared with many other European markets. However, significant signs of change were seen in 2019, and we have a strong belief in continued growth. Hoist Finance has offices in Lille and Paris.Visit Market
