Is it a match? Top 5 criteria when looking for a debt sale partner

CFG Credit Counselling Services

If you are new to debt selling, looking for the right buyer can be tricky, but it doesn`t need to be. 

When searching for a debt buyer, there is more to look at than just purchase price offers. Compliance, ample funding and proven experience can be key points to differentiate a promising long-lasting partnership from a potential risk to your reputation. Once you know what to look for, your search can be much more successful – here are our top 5 criteria to consider when looking for the right debt sale partner.

Proven experience matters 

When starting your research, ask for proven purchasing experience in closing deals. You want a buyer that is experienced, transparent and efficient, and targets offering a good deal for all involved. A negative or non-existing closed deals track record should raise concerns regarding the potential buyer.

Your customers and your reputation 

Customers that have an outstanding debt with you are still your customers. If you sell that debt, the company collecting it is representing your brand. Ensure your partner will treat your customers as you would. Aggressive collection practices can reflect badly on your brand's reputation. Make sure the debt buyer has your and your customer's interests at heart.

Good compliance policies 

The debt buying industry is highly regulated. Make sure the buyer has a strong compliance program, including detailed policies and procedures that meet all regulatory requirements and the highest industry standards. Remember that if a buyer does not have, or does not follow, all required policies and procedures, their actions can negatively affect your brand as well. Also, inquire about their practices to collect and ensure they are fully compliant with the most recent rules relating to IT and data security.

Optimized pricing 

For you to get the best price offer for your debt, the buyer needs to have strong analytics to back up their proposal. It also needs to have ample low-cost funding available, which directly affects the final offered purchase price. Understanding a buyer’sstructure and ownership will allow you to work with a company that can support sustainable optimized prices during a long-term relationship.

Customized solutions 

Every company has its own priorities and specific goals, which means debt selling solutions will differ as well. A good buyer should be willing to provide a customized solution that suits your goals and needs.
