The Green Finance Story:

In spring 2015, professionals from the financial services and energy industries came together to launch a new idea on the market: To put people in the foreground, in harmony with the environment and the surroundings.

The idea of “Green Finance” was born. The aim was to offer modern financial investments which offer a clear customer advantage through good earning opportunities and which also focus on sustainable management.

For the start of Green Finance 5 people were essential: Mr. Gerald Frühauf, Mr. Ivo Ljubas, Mr. Thomas Hauer, Mr. Markus Jäkel and Mr. Christian Schauer. Thanks to the cooperation and reliability of our partners from the very beginning, it was not only possible to build up the company, but also to create a strong, long-term vision.

The rest is history.

Green Finance GmbH Austria was founded in October 2015 after a 6-month planning phase and registered in the commercial register. Operations commenced immediately.

After 12 months Walter Schuster could be won as a partner in October 2016. Walter Schuster has since played a leading role in Green Finance.
