The inside story of one of the superstars of global FinTech, Lex Greensill, and his dramatic fall from grace.

In March 2021, an obscure financial technology company called Greensill Capital collapsed, going into administration. As it unraveled, a multibillion-dollar scandal emerged that would shake the very foundations of the British political system, drawing in swiss bankers, global CEOs, and world leaders. At the centre was an Australian financier named Lex Greensill.

With a globe-circling narrative full of scandal and intrigue, Pyramid of Lies reveals how the grubby world of shadow banking really operates.
