Deloitte can assist with identifying ways to maximise value from non-core assets through deleveraging, rigorous planning and asset management. Entering the loan portfolio transactions market is a key tool in any deleveraging programme, providing a rapid source of capital raising. Furthermore, regulatory change and market pressures mean that capital optimisation is increasingly critical for financial institutions and the viability of their business models.

We advise holders, sellers and buyers of non-core assets and under performing loan portfolios in deleveraging, portfolio management and investment strategies. Working closely with financial institutions in their capital planning is also core to our business proposition.
