From humble beginnings to revolutionary thinking.

Our passion was born out of personal experience. Founder and Chief Executive Lex Greensill saw firsthand the devastating impact inefficient financial supply chains can have on a business as he grew up on his parents' sugar cane farm in Australia. This fundamental experience is at the heart of all we do.

The Greensill story

Greensill is the market-leading provider of working capital finance for companies globally. We unlock capital so the world can put it to work.

Founded in 2011 by Lex Greensill, the company is headquartered in London with offices in New York, Chicago, Miami, Frankfurt, Bremen, and Sydney, with more than 240 specialists worldwide.

Greensill provides Supply Chain Finance to customers across Europe, North America, Latin America, Africa and Asia and works with a host of banks and institutional investors to provide solid funding streams to underpin the process.

But we are about much more than Supply Chain Finance. Greensill uses the power of financial markets to unlock capital on terms that fit the precise requirements of our clients, from 20 days to 20 years and beyond.

The company has extended more than $50bn of financing to a pool of 1.7 million suppliers in 60-plus countries in the six years since inception.

We own Greensill Bank and created the world’s first Supply Chain Finance fund, which today has $3bn of assets under management.

No other bank or financial services company has our passion and expertise.

Before forming Greensill, Lex established and led Morgan Stanley’s global supply chain finance team and successfully developed supply chain finance practices for Citibank. He is a former Senior Advisor to and a Crown Representative of Her Majesty’s Government on Supply Chain Finance and was awarded the CBE for Services to the British Economy in Queen Elizabeth II’s 2017 Birthday Honours.

At Greensill, we are changing finance to change the world.
