ABOUT US
ABOUT CONVENTUS

Turning problems into money – that is our mission daily. Not only collecting debts, but also repossessing movable property, safely storing, and selling it in auction. This complete solution saves time for the client and “Conventus” is the only company that provides this full service in Latvia.

“A complete solution, from the moment a problem emerges to receiving money in your bank account, for example, after we sold a repossessed vehicle, also collecting the difference still owed after it is sold. No other company in Latvia offers such solution.”

/Agris Raciborskis, Director of Commerce/

““Conventus” can offer much more, in comparison to other debt collection companies. We call it “encumbered asset management”. If a debtor refuses to pay, we can find the debtor, repossess property owed for, store it and sell it.”

/Jānis Krastiņš, Member of the Board/

Our customers do not have to spend time looking for several separate service providers. Unlike other companies that deal only with debt recovery, “Conventus” can provide all-in- one solution – pre-court debt collection, legal services, as well as sale and storage of property.
“We have both jurists and lawyers who deal with legal proceedings, as well as utrupe.lv, which deals with the storage and sale of property. This is a serious problem for any other debt collection company. If they are asked – can you repossess the property? The answer will be – “no, we cannot”. In such cases, they recommend us because we provide the service. ”

/Jānis Krastiņš, Member of the Board/

Essential key word for “Conventus” is security. We guarantee security for our customers in both physical and moral sense. Repossessed property is stored in a guarded area equipped with a security systems and surveillance cameras. We are trusted as a company, we can be proud about the reports of security checks of several leading banks and insurance companies. We also have an impressive database of debtors dating back 18 years since the company was founded.
“The root of a successful debt recovery is contact information. You need to know how and where you can reach the debtor, because people often change their places of residence or indicate false addresses. We have been operating since 1999, and during this time we have accumulated a large debtor database and developed solutions for the better data acquisition. This is essential for our overseas customers.”

/Edgars Baglais, Chairman of the Board/

Insurance companies – business statistics show that, on average the amount of money recovered for insurance companies has increased by up to 30%
„Accident damaged cars become an encumbered asset for the insurer. We transport it to our storage area, sell it and convert it into money. Problem solved! Our clients include all of Latvia’s most recognized insurance companies.”

/Jānis Krastiņš, Member of the Board/

„People have developed the habit of indicating that property is more damaged than it actually is in their insurance claims. For insurers this means paying out an inadequately large compensation when in fact, the property is only partially damaged. We have experts trained to indicate this and as a result, insurers significantly reduce the amount payable to their client.”

/Edgars Baglais, Chairman of the Board/

Landlords – whenever it is necessary to vacate premises, selling different equipment that take up rental space, turning their encumbered assets into cash;

any company which has expenses abroad – the recovery of VAT paid, especially in logistics, for re-fuelling abroad, etc.;
