  • Latin America — first country operations were established in 1931 in Mexico. Other markets served are Brazil, Chile, Colombia and Peru.
  • Asia — IO operates a joint venture in China, SAIC-GMAC, which became the first auto finance entity in the market when it launched in 2004. Today, it remains the market leader.
