Milan, 21 December, 2021 – Cuvée, the innovative multi-originator platform managing UTP (Unlikely to Pay) loans in the real estate sector, further expands its assets under management thanks to a €124 million contribution from Iccrea Banca, CRA Binasco and another leading Italian banking institution to the Back2Bonis Fund.

The total amount of loans under management thus reaches more than €1,1 billion, confirming the leading position in the Italian market.

The Back2Bonis Fund is the first credit fund specialized in Unlikely to Pay real estate loans in Italy and one of the most important in Europe. Within Cuvée platform, AMCO acts as Master and Special Servicer and Prelios Group as Fund Operator, Real Estate Partner and Special Servicer for management of loans with underlying real estate leases.

The Fund allows participants to benefit from the potential recovery of the files’ value through the valuation of the shares held in the fund itself. It also facilitates the turnaround process for debtor companies, with new financing from the Fund, allowing a proactive management of loans and the underlying assets.

AMCO demonstrates once again its ability to lead multi-origination structures in a process aimed at promoting the industrial re-launch of the country’s economy, putting resources back in circulation to support the recovery.
