MADRID Dec 12 Spanish lender Popular
has sold a 1.143 billion euro ($1.49 billion) portfolio of
troubled consumer loans to two international investors, a source
familiar with the matter said on Wednesday.
Nordic distressed debt group Lindorff and financial
services-focused private equity firm Anacap bought the
portfolio, according to the source.
It was not immediately clear what price the investors had
paid for the package of loans. The portfolio had already been
largely provisioned for.
