History

Founded in 2000, The Debt Exchange, Inc. (DebtX) was started to provide liquidity for loans and enable financial institutions to actively manage their portfolios by selling and buying loans via an Internet loan marketplace. The DebtX platform was utilized on a proprietary basis by DebtX’s Loan Sale Advisory Group until 2005, when DebtX offered its clients direct access to the marketplace. The marketplace has since grown to include hundreds of loan sellers and syndicators, and more than 100,000 primary and secondary market participants.

For more than 15 years, DebtX has collected trade data on transactions executed via the DebtX marketplace and has leveraged this data to provide independent, reliable and defendable estimated market prices on nearly $1 trillion in loans per month. DebtX recently launched DXScore®, a credit rating system for commercial real estate (CRE) loans, using this same data to calibrate its models. DebtX is the only company with such market insight, data, and industry experience.
