Westlake ALPS swiftly moves to acquire $14.7M bulk portfolio


Advanced Lending & Portfolio Services (ALPS), a division of Westlake Financial Services, tried to make it a simple process for a buy-here, pay-here operator to cash in on his way to departing the space.

Earlier this week, Westlake ALPS announced the acquisition of a $14.7 million bulk auto-loam portfolio, which consisted of more than 2,230 BHPH vehicle installment contracts from a company located in Savannah, Ga.

“The owner wanted to exit the buy-here, pay-here market, so we assessed his needs and quickly developed a strategy for him to accomplish this goal,” said Todd Laruffa, assistant vice president and division head of ALPS. “Our entire closing process was completed on-site within one week.”

Westlake ALPS explained it was able to close by acting fast and flying the team to Savannah to work the deal on-site in order to meet the seller’s needs.

“The purchase price on this deal generated a full pay-off for the senior lender, which proves Westlake ALPS to be a viable option for senior lenders to liquidate account receivables without the burden of a runoff scenario,” said Ian Anderson, group president of Westlake Financial Services.
