UK Asset Resolution Limited (UKAR)
UKAR, the holding company for NRAM plc (NRAM) and Bradford & Bingley plc (B&B), was established on 1 October 2010 to facilitate the orderly management of the closed mortgage books of both B&B and NRAM to maximise value for taxpayers, while ensuring that both companies continue to treat customers fairly, deliver consistently high levels of service and support those customers facing financial difficulty. Further information about UKAR is available at www.ukar.co.uk.
UKAR announced the sale of performing and non-performing residential mortgages from the legacy book of NRAM to Cerberus in November 2015. The structure of the transaction means that, subject to regulatory approval, Cerberus will purchase NRAM plc. Assets and liabilities not included in the transaction will be transferred from NRAM plc to a newly established subsidiary of UKAR, currently known as NRAM (No.1) Limited, at which point Mr McDonagh will also be appointed to that Board.
