PeliFilip assisted Banca Transilvania in the acquisition of a performing loans portfolio from Bank of Cyprus

PeliFilip assisted Banca Transilvania, one of the most important players of the local banking sector, in the acquisition of a performing loans portfolio granted by Bank of Cyprus to retail clients in Romania.

The completion of this transaction is scheduled for the end of February this year and it will result in the increase of the retail clients of Banca Transilvania.

„This transaction is an exception for the Romanian market, which has been dominated lately by sales of non-performing loan portfolios. We thank our partner – Banca Transilvania – for the excellent collaboration we have and for the opportunity to engage with them in some of the most important transactions in the local banking sector”, stated Carmen Peli, Partner, PeliFilip.

The PeliFilip team involved in this transaction was coordinated by Carmen Peli and Monica Iancu, Partners, and by Alexandra Manciulea, Senior Lawyer.
