A cross-border fintech company, Grey, has embarked on a significant global brand rebranding initiative, revealing a fresh logo and website design as part of moves to expand its footprint in the global market.
The company’s transformation was unveiled on its social media platforms on Monday, November 27, 2023, and follows closely on the heels of Grey celebrating a milestone achievement of surpassing 500,000 users.
Grey, which was founded in mid-2020 by Mr Idorenyin Obong and Mr Femi Aghedo, aims to leverage this fresh identity to reach a broader audience and solidify its international presence.
The updated brand assets visually represent Grey’s commitment to innovation, excellence, and global connectivity.
The company’s rapid growth and expanding user base have spurred this bold step towards rebranding, symbolizing success and underlining its dedication to remaining at the forefront of global fintech innovation.
The company revealed that the previous logo was not usable in some foreign markets due to trademark conflicts with another company.
Speaking on the development, Mr Obong, The CEO and founder of Grey, while sharing insights into the rationale behind the rebranding said, “As we chart our course toward serving a global audience, we recognized the need for trademarks and related processes. We identified similarities with existing marks during this evaluation, prompting a deliberate rebrand.
“The new logo and website signify our forward trajectory, emphasizing global connectivity and our commitment to creating a more interconnected world. Our focus remains on being people-centric and cultivating a lasting community.”
Adding his input, Mr Aghedo, Co-founder of Grey, emphasized the strategic timing of the brand evolution, stating, “The timing simply felt right to evolve our brand. Our growth and evolution as a business needed to be reflected tangibly. We are dedicated to ongoing innovation, adapting our services to meet the dynamic needs of our customers.
“Our core mission is to provide seamless and secure cross-border payment solutions, empowering businesses and individuals in the global economy. We eagerly anticipate the future of fintech and the opportunities it presents for us to impact the industry positively.”
The company noted that its brand evolution is occurring at a crucial juncture for the fintech industry, which is positioned for significant opportunities despite recent economic uncertainties. The fintech sector has faced challenges in the past year; notwithstanding, Grey has rapidly scaled, adeptly responding to the heightened demand for its services.
The company has also established key partnerships across both B2B and B2C sectors across Africa over the past months, solidifying its reputation as a trusted and reliable cross-border payments company.
Furthermore, customers can expect a more innovative and interconnected user experience when engaging on their platforms. As Grey ventures into this exciting new chapter, the fintech said it is committed to providing cutting-edge and secure cross-border payment solutions, fostering global connectivity, and contributing to the evolving landscape of the fintech industry.
