Meanwhile, “Financiera Auritec” through “GMAC Residential Capital” mainly focused on the purchase and servicing of portfolios of Non-Performing construction loans.
GMAC Financiera
In 2000, thanks to the successful entrepreneurship of “Auritec”, “GMAC Residential Capital” decided to establish “GMAC Financiera” in Mexico, as of today “Proyectos Adamantine”, focused on real estate investments.
11 MBS’s Performed
Between 2003 and 2009, we performed 11 MBS’s and the role of Master Servicer began in Mexico, obtaining the highest scores as such from various rating agencies like Standard & Poor’s and Moody’s. Adamantine was recognized for granting funding to build more than 100,000 houses, gave credit lines secured by more than 10,800 million pesos with a return index of 3.2 times it’s value.
Anticipate the Global Financial Crisis of 2008
Since 2007 we are the first Mexican financial institution to anticipate the global financial crisis of 2008, achieving a recovery rate of 92% of the balance of the assets.
In May 2012, Adamantine Fund I LP, managed by Ascendancy makes the acquisition of “GMAC Financiera” modifying the name and shifting the corporate image to Adamantine.
Purchase of Projects Adamantine
In 2014 Ascendancy Group buys 100% stake of Projects Adamantine from their partners and makes a major capital injection to the company, changing from 500 million pesos more than 2,000 million pesos, thus liquidating all it’s lines of credit up to that point.
