Brasil Distressed Consultoria Empresarial S.A. is a Brazilian company which specialises in investing in distressed assets, purchased at a discount to face value. Assets are purchased from financial institutions, investors, suppliers and other creditors. We are interested in purchasing individual loans or portfolios which are no longer strategic for the seller.

BrD is focused primarily on the corporate segment and will consider credits on any borrower in Brazil. We are not engaged in the individuals segment, such as consumer credits, credit cards and payroll loans, etc. After a purchase, we initiate collection proceedings and will strive for a swift settlement through careful negotiations and creative solutions. As part of a settlement agreement we might consider accepting certain goods (payment in kind) or an exchange for other credits that the borrower or guarantor hold. Another option is the sale of the asset to other investors.

Our investment decision is based on an analysis of the current situation of a particular asset and the options available for a quick resolution. We avoid getting involved in the historic background and the emotional legacy of a given transaction. Given the high financial and operational risk of our activity, BrD focuses on investment opportunities that will generate above-average rates of return generally found in the financial market.
