Greensill Capital Named Supply Chain Financier of the Year

1st November, 2017

Greensill Capital was named Supply Chain Financier of the Year by Trade Finance Global in the 2017 TFG International Trade Awards.

Greensill was recognised for its innovative approach to unlocking capital and putting it to work for clients all over the world, with special mention going to the company’s ground-breaking aircraft finance solution.

Lex Greensill, Greensill Capital CEO, said, “I am incredibly proud of the Greensill team’s dedication and pioneering approach. Creating innovative, effective ways to ensure businesses have the capital they need when they need it has never been more essential. As the WTO continued to forecast sluggish growth in global trade for 2017, we found at Greensill Capital more opportunity than ever to help our clients unlock capital and put it to work.

“We expanded our product offering to set a new standard in aircraft finance in conjunction with Boeing, Norwegian Air Shuttle and Marsh. We also financed billions of dollars of large, complex acquisitions such as Arrium Steel in South Australia on behalf of Liberty House.”

Each category was judged by a panel of professional judges, and 2017 was the biggest TFG Awards to date, with entrants from more than 100 companies from around the world.

James Sinclair, Trade Finance Global editor, said, “We were proud to nominate fin-tech and disruptors who are using technology to accelerate the use of paperless trade, automation and eKYC. It’s been a pleasure for the judging panel reading independent reviews, talking to experts in the sector and reviewing websites.”
