The joining of forces
Millennium Holdings Japan grew in the aftermath following the burst of the bubble economy in late 80s to 90s, which saw an increase in non-performing loans and the need for a loan servicing system to support them.
Founded in 2000 to service this market, Millennium built a solid reputation for servicing local and international clients and was granted a loans servicing license by Japan’s Minister of Justice.
In 2021, the Pepper Group acquired Millennium Holdings and has combined its expertise with Millennium’s to serve a Japanese NPL market that looks set to grow in response to Covid-19, regional bank consolidation and regulatory focus.
“This acquisition allows us to combine our existing global expertise with a strong domestic platform to attract new business and build a strong portfolio servicing loans on behalf of others. We view this as an important first step into the Japanese financial services market.”
