Global leasing and tech company CHG-MERIDIAN has furthered its growth in Australia and New Zealand by acquiring Maia Financial Pty Limited’s asset portfolio on June 28.

The sale price was not disclosed. This portfolio, which includes leased IT, healthcare, and industrial equipment, enhances CHG-MERIDIAN’s technology offerings and expands its market presence in the ANZ region.

The CHG-MERIDIAN Group employs over 1,400 people across 30 countries on five continents. It develops, finances, and manages tailored technology usage models for the IT, industrial, and healthcare sectors. Its services are available in up to 190 countries through subsidiaries, partner networks, and affiliated companies.

CHG-MERIDIAN entered the Australian market in 2018 by acquiring Equigroup, a regional technology finance company formerly owned by the Commonwealth Bank of Australia. The CHG-MERIDIAN brand was introduced in 2019. After operating both brands for five years, the Group decided to rebrand Equigroup as CHG-MERIDIAN in 2024 to enhance customer-centricity and operational efficiency.

“We are meeting the needs of our customers with our presence in the regional markets,” said Mathias Wagner, CEO of CHG-MERIDIAN. “The acquisition of Maia Financial’s portfolio offers us an attractive opportunity to further strengthen the positioning of our technology2use solutions on-site.”

Maia Financial, founded in 1989 and based in Sydney, is an asset finance company owned by two global investment firms. Its portfolio includes around 500 customers, with about half in the healthcare sector. The managed assets are valued at approximately AUD$500 million (€300 million). This acquisition positions CHG-MERIDIAN as a leading healthcare financier in Australia and New Zealand.
