Debitos is founded by Timur Peters with idea of combining the concepts of factoring and ?peer-to-peer lending? and adapting them to the market of non-performing loans and enforceable claims. After an intense dialog with the Bundesanstalt für Finanzdienstleistungsaufsicht (Federal Agency for Financial Services Supervision, BaFin) and the German privacy protection authorities, the technical development of the online-platform starts in late2010

At the beginning of 2011 , the venture capital firm Paua Ventures invests in Debitos. The operational beta-phase begins a little later, and first transactions are successfully completed soon thereafter.

In March2012 , Debitos moves into a new office at Friedrich-Ebert-Anlage 36 in Frankfurt am Main. A second investment by Paua Ventures with participation from RI Digital Ventures and an angel investor enables the further growth of the young company.

The number of registered investors on Debitos grows continuously and passes 200 companies in 2013 . Sellers benefit directly from direct access to the growing investor base and increased competition, which translates into higher transaction prices. An equity investment by Otto Capital B.V. closes during the summer. In November, the volume offered simultaneously on Debitos marks a new record at 890 million euros, reiterating the growing acceptance of Debitos in the corporate landscape.

At the beginning of 2014 , Debitos is awarded the certification ?proven online-portal? by TÜV Saarland. Trading activities focus more and more on non-performing loans (NPLs) and bankruptcy claims from banks and financial institutions. Due to the high demand from its customers, Debitos expands in offer to include the trading of real estate-secured NPLs. Since more and more deals with debtors outside of Germany are offered, Debitos attracts increased interest from international investors. To cater their needs, the English version of the trading platform launches in November 2014.

Today, more than 1.300 banks and corporates actively trade both real estate-secured and unsecured non-performing loans, enforceable claims and bankruptcy claims on Debitos. Sellers using the platform benefit from faster transactions, higher transaction prices and increased transparency.
