Cerberus and BBVA Hire Konstantin Sajonia-Coburgo to Head Up Divarian

16 August 2019

The US fund Cerberus and BBVA have hired Konstantin Saxony-Coburg to head up Divarian, the company that they created after Cerberus acquired the bank’s real estate assets. Saxony-Coburg left his position as co-head of investment banking at Barclays Spain last year, where he had worked since 2010. Divarian, owned 80% by Cerberus and 20% by BBVA, has €13 billion in assets in its portfolio.

The North American fund and BBVA opted to merge Divarian with the US firm’s servicer, Haya Real Estate, this year. Haya is responsible for managing and selling all Cerberus’s real estate holdings in Spain, except for its land bank, which is managed by Inmoglaciar.
