About Encore Capital Group

Encore Capital Group logoEncore Capital Group, Inc., through its subsidiaries, is a specialty finance company providing debt recovery solutions for consumers and property owners across a range of financial assets.

Its portfolio purchasing and recovery segment purchases portfolios of defaulted consumer receivables at discounts and manages them by partnering with individuals as they repay their obligations and work toward financial recovery.

Defaulted receivables also include receivables subject to bankruptcy proceedings. In addition, the Company assists property owners delinquenting on their property taxes by structuring monthly payment plans and purchases delinquent tax liens directly from taxing authorities.
