STOCKHOLM, Dec. 14, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- In line with the strategy that was set out two years ago, Hoist Finance is now announcing the next step for the company's organisation. Operating as One Hoist Finance has significantly increased the company's cross-border collaboration, harmonisation and standardisation of processes. From 1 January 2021, Hoist Finance will establish a new operating model with four business lines; Contact Centre Operations, Secured non-performing loans, Digital (unsecured non-performing loans) and Retail Banking (performing loans).

With the One Hoist Finance foundation in place, we are ready to further expand across asset classes, to widen our service and product portfolio and to catalyse our digital aspirations. This will further strengthen our focus on operations and market execution, and bring us closer to our customers", says Klaus-Anders Nysteen, Hoist Finance CEO.
