The portfolio was sold by four German banks, including Eurohypo, Helaba Landesbank Hessen-Thüringen, Berlin Hyp and Archon Capital Bank. These loans were utilized to develop properties primarily in Berlin and Frankfurt in the mid- to late 1990s. Since the end of 2009, the Los Angeles-based international investment firm has made four NPL portfolio acquisitions in Germany.
