AsoCapital Our philosophy & approach

Our philosophy & approach

Turnaround capital is a critical tool for reducing the effects of poverty in emerging markets, by preventing the loss of corporate businesses and facilitating access to formal credit, at the same time, preserving jobs.

ASOCapital seeks to ease the pressure of non-performing loans (NPLs) and facilitates the normalisation of obligations of corporates, communities and people. At the same time, we seek to introduce and support best resolution practices. Access to finance and credit helps drive economic growth.

When investors and lenders have unresolved or underperforming credits on their books, the flow of credit stalls, and so does growth. With the growth of credit globally, effective ways of resolving distressed assets are increasingly critical. The ability to quickly resolve problem assets is even more imperative during times of financial crisis.

As distressed assets are cleared from a financial system, economic recovery can pick up pace and lending and job creation can resume.
