From supporting education, buying the perfect engagement ring, acquiring a coffee machine for a small business to refurbishing homes and financing travel experiences – FlexiGroup makes moments happen through its vast array of finance products and payment solutions.

“Our range of diverse financial solutions can be personalised to connect customers to goods and services that support their work and lifestyle,” says CEO Symon Brewis-Weston.

Established 26 years ago as a single product company focused on consumer leasing, FlexiGroup has grown to become the market leader in Australia with a strong presence in New Zealand and Ireland. The group ranks among the top 200 firms listed on the Australian Securities Exchange and has an extensive network of more than 20,000 merchant, retail and online partners in its key markets.

“Having deep relationships with our business partners and a solid understanding of the local markets enable us to stay nimble and respond quickly to changing consumer trends,” Brewis-Weston says.

Today, FlexiGroup’s innovative financing solutions include a “no interest ever” payment scheme through Certegy Ezi-Pay. Thousands of retailers and businesses in key market segments have successfully used Certegy Ezi-Pay for various needs such as home improvement, including the purchase of home solar panels, or even luxury purchases such as jewellery. The group also offers consumer and business leasing solutions through its specialised brands FlexiRent, FlexiWay, FlexiCommercial, FlexiEnterprise and SmartWay.

In Australia, FlexiGroup’s customers can also enjoy interest-free payment deals through its branded credit cards Lombard and Once. Its Q Card brand comprises roughly 10 per cent of the total outstanding credit card balance in New Zealand. It will soon launch Flexi-Fi, a product that will provide customers in Ireland with an interest-free payment period.

FlexiGroup welcomes partnership opportunities with regional players who possess strong logistics and distribution capabilities and have a solid understanding of the local consumer credit environments including online platforms.
