The Debt Exchange is based in the Financial District in Boston, Massachusetts with additional U.S. offices in New York City, Atlanta, Virginia, San Francisco, and international offices in Germany, Spain, and the United Kingdom. DebtX was founded in 1999 and in 2000 began selling loans in an online auction format.

Since its founding, DebtX has expanded to offer other products and services including loan valuation and analytics as well as Web-based deal management platforms for use by syndication, agency and loan sale professionals. Throughout the Financial Crisis of 2007–2009, the U.S. Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) used DebtX as one of the primary companies to sell loans from failed banks.
