Mirko Briozzo and Guido Lombardo will present Gardant, the new form of a leader in the Italian credit servicing and investment sector, with over 45 billion of loans under servicing and a track record of over 1.2 billion invested (purchase price) over the last few years.
Gardant was established last August via spin-off from Credito Fondiario of the entirety of its credit servicing and investment business, with the objective of creating a fully focussed and operationally flexible non-banking group dedicated to this business.
The name Gardant, inspired by old terms linked to “defence’ and ‘protection’, enriched by a shield, aims at communicating our commitment to counterparties, investors and stakeholders.
Gardant is organised via an operational holding, Gardant, and specialised group companies: Master Gardant (master servicing and credit support servicing), Special Gardant (special servicing) and Gardant Investor SGR, the asset management company specialised in alternative funds in the credit sector.
Gardant has a team of highly-skilled professionals, committed shareholders and partners with whom we have been working constructively for many years.
