(Reuters) – European private equity company AnaCap Financial Partners has agreed to buy consumer debt financing group Cabot Financial from American bank Citi, the companies said in a statement.
The price of the acquisition was not disclosed, but AnaCap said the deal would create a leading British debt management firm with combined assets under management of more than 6 billion pounds ($9.83 billion).
“The UK’s debt management sector is very fragmented and we believe that creating a large scale provider will facilitate a superior level of service for both corporate customers and consumers,” AnaCap managing director Fabrizio Cesario said in a statement.
