Greensill is a family business

Greensill is a world leader in finance and technology, but we are about much more than that.

Greensill is a family business, with roots in the rich red earth of Bundaberg, Queensland – Australia’s fertile farming belt.

The journey began in 1945 when Roy Greensill ploughed, raised and cut a 200 acres sugar cane by hand, bringing home the first Greensill harvest and laying the foundation for what was to come.

In just two generations his grandsons Lex and Peter have transformed that first harvest into a multi-billion-dollar global fintech that’s changing finance to change the world.

Greensill is always seeking what’s new.

New technology platforms, new sources of capital, new means of tapping into the vast troves of data available to us as we continue to disrupt and redesign financial services to deliver the cheapest possible capital to businesses of every size all over the world — from the smallest SMEs to the biggest multi-nationals.

Greensill makes a difference in the farthest corners of the world. We are are reimagining handset financing with the Inter-American Development Bank, and by doing so, we are putting smartphones in the hands of more people in remote regions of Latin America. This grants access to crucial technology and the ability to connect on a worldwide scale not previously possible.

Greensill also makes a difference for your health and wellbeing. High Street pharmacies play an essential role in the lives of millions of citizens across Britain, but they have been hampered by slow government payment mechanisms. Greensill’s tech-driven, £1 billion Supply Chain Finance programme with the UK’s Crown Commercial Service ensures prompt payment for frontline healthcare every time.

With clients large and small, Greensill makes a difference all over the world — in Brazil, India, China, Southeast Asia, Africa and beyond. We are the world’s No. 1 provider of working capital finance.

Join us — and together we can change finance to change the world.
