Chicago, Ill. – May 18, 2023: GTreasury, a treasury, payments, and risk management software provider, today announces that it has secured a majority investment from Hg, a leading investor in global software and services companies. As part of the transaction, the GTreasury management team and former majority owner, Mainsail Partners, will continue as investors in the business.
Based in Chicago, Illinois, GTreasury is a global leader in treasury management systems (TMS) for organizations worldwide. GTreasury’s SaaS solutions assist treasury departments to effectively manage liquidity needs, payment execution, bank relationships, FX hedging, and auditing and compliance requirements. GTreasury provides these practitioners with real-time insight and access into their global liquidity needs, serving over 700 customers across 30 industries in over 160 countries.
Renaat Ver Eecke, CEO of GTreasury, said: “This is a great moment for the team at GTreasury as it will support further product development and geographic expansion, helping us to continue innovating and bringing new products and features to an ever-growing customer base. Hg’s global software specialization and deep knowledge in this area will help accelerate this strategy significantly.”
Hg’s investment and support will enable GTreasury to continue its rapid growth as a highly strategic platform in the TMS segment, with scope to drive further operational improvements, invest in more product development, and continue its global expansion plans—including Asia Pacific regions and in Europe, where Hg has a deep network and 30-year heritage. Hg has invested around $9 billion in the wider tax and accounting software segment across Europe and North America over the last 19 years, with an increasing focus on software serving the ‘Office of the CFO’.
Ben Meyer, Partner at Hg, said: “Renaat leads an impressive team in a high-quality business, providing a leading solution in what is a fast-growing segment. We are excited to partner with Renaat and his team, and to work together with Mainsail, to support them in further scaling GTreasury as a TMS industry champion.”
Louis Kinsella, Director at Hg, said: “TMS software is becoming an increasingly critical segment within the office of the CFO, with companies continuing to focus on their cash and liquidity visibility and needs. This is a really long-term trend, and we’re delighted to be backing a great businesses and team which is at the forefront of this sector.”
“Partnering with Renaat and the rest of the GTreasury team over the past five years to build a leading treasury management platform has been very rewarding,” said Vinay Kashyap, Partner at Mainsail Partners. “We believe the company is well positioned and are excited to continue our partnership along with management and the team at Hg.”
