GM Financial, formerly AmeriCredit Corp., has been a leading provider of auto finance solutions in the U.S. since 1992. The company has established expertise in originating and servicing near prime auto loans, which include auto finance contracts originated by dealers and purchased by the company. On Oct. 1, 2010, General Motors Company (GM) acquired AmeriCredit and changed the company's name to GM Financial. On April 1, 2011, GM Financial acquired FinanciaLinx, Canada's largest independent vehicle leasing company, and GM Financial Canada was established. The acquisition propelled GM Financial into the Canadian lease market to address the lack of lease financing options for GM dealers in Canada. Today we offer a comprehensive lease program and additional products to support our dealer customers' effort to sell more vehicles.
GM Financial Canada is headquartered in Toronto and provides centralized underwriting and funding to efficiently serve dealers. A team of GM Financial Dealer Relationship Managers are strategically located across Canada to provide local service to dealers.
