United Kingdom

 

The UK is home to our Group Head office, IT Development team and Bluestone Capital Management in Cambridge, as well as Bluestone Credit Management in Sheffield and Bluestone Mortgages in London.

Bluestone’s team numbers over 150 passionate people who really do put the customer first. We pride ourselves in leveraging market leading technology and innovation to exceed the expectations of our customers.

Our fresh, non-traditional approach continues to enable us to deliver solution driven products and services to our growing UK customer base.

  • Bluestone Capital Management


    Bluestone Capital Management specialises in acquiring and managing portfolios of loans, particularly challenging loans and legacy portfolios.

    Portfolio sales can be particularly attractive to vendors looking to limit their exposure to further losses and either release capital or reduce the risk that further capital will be needed to support a portfolio. Other interested parties include lenders exiting a jurisdiction or asset class, mortgagee’s in possession, or the administrators of struggling ventures.

    We also look after mortgage and asset backed securities. Many of these securities are now classified as illiquid and impaired which potentially impedes owners from holding them efficiently. We understand the complex credit and liquidity issues within these securities and how to price and manage them effectively with an objective of optimising returns.

    Our expertise in managing portfolios that are more challenging from a credit perspective means financial performance is optimised and we are able to effectively price portfolios offered for sale, often to levels that exceed recoveries from a self-managed wind-down.
  • Bluestone Credit Management


    Founded over 40 years ago, Bluestone Credit Management is one of the UK's most experienced providers of credit management services.

    We have an experienced team of over 100 based in our Sheffield office, and a field team operating throughout the UK. Managing a wide range of asset types including commercial debts, outstanding tax payments, personal loans, utility payments and shortfall accounts. We use cutting edge technology and data analytics to connect with as many customers as possible.

    We invest in our people and their development to make sure they’re committed and capable of delivering the best possible customer experience.

    Born out of the successful acquisition of Basinghall Finance in 2015, we now have £550m of mortgages under management including 3 securitisations in the Clavis and Celeste RMBS issuance programs.
