This includes consulting services for obtaining bank and alternative financing, buying and selling NPL and REO portfolios, and debt restructuring processes.

The appointment expands the scope of services offered by the Debt Advisory team in Spain to the Iberian region. The Spanish team is led by Miguel Martínez, managing director, who has a long track record and extensive experience in the market, advising financial restructuring operations and real estate financing worth over €34 bn and portfolio transactions exceeding €55 bn.

With over 25 years of experience in both national and international financial institutions and servicers, André has built a solid career in structuring, restructuring, and managing real estate debt. She has originated and advised on operations worth over €3 bn in mortgage loans and NPLs for major Portuguese and European players. Her focus has been on real estate financing and debt management, with previous roles at institutions such as Eurohypo and Commerzbank. In 2020, in collaboration with Davidson Kempner and Reviva Capital, she co-founded the Portuguese servicer company, Reviva Portugal.

'It is with great enthusiasm that I embrace this new challenge with Colliers, which is one of the most relevant players in Corporate Finance and Debt Advisory across Europe. Making sure such experience and know-how is now available in the Portuguese market and contribute to the consolidation of Colliers position in Portugal is extremely motivating,' said Carla André, senior advisor of Debt at Colliers.
