When GE Capital sold its consumer financial services business to a private equity consortium (KKR, Varde Partners, Deutsche Bank), the new owners needed a new brand to drive growth and a strong commercial return across a mixed portfolio comprising B2C customers, B2B partners and employees across multiple brands. The challenge was to formulate a brand architecture, strategy, visual and verbal identity (including a new name) to transform the business and its category on both sides of the Tasman.
