Promotes Senior Executive, Rohith Murthy, to Chief Business Officer
Focuses on Strategic Executive Hiring to Sustain Momentum
SINGAPORE, Jan. 24, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — MoneyHero Limited (Nasdaq: MNY) (“MoneyHero” or the “Company”), a market leading personal finance aggregation and comparison platform in Greater Southeast Asia, today announced impressive unaudited, year-over-year growth milestones for Q4 2023, including1:
- Approved Applications surged by over 80%, significantly outperforming competitors and driving strong revenue growth;
- Group revenue increased by more than 50% YoY from US$17.2m in Q4’22; and
- Singapore revenue, a key growth market for the Company, increased more than 100% YoY from US$6.3m in Q4’22.
Additionally, MoneyHero has promoted Chief Product Officer Rohith Murthy to the role of Chief Business Officer. Rohith has been an integral part of the Company’s leadership team for close to a decade, and during that time has demonstrated a proven track record of driving innovation and growth within the organization. In his new role as Chief Business Officer, Rohith will oversee product, technology, and marketing at MoneyHero, ensuring a seamless integration of these critical functions to further drive the Company’s success.
“Over the past twelve months, MoneyHero has achieved significant growth in approved application volumes generated through our market-leading financial products platform, far exceeding our internal projections. Importantly, Q4 growth in Singapore has been exceptional. Based on broad feedback from our partners, MoneyHero’s ascendance has also led to a notable reduction in the market share of the Company’s competitors, further solidifying our position as the preferred choice in the market,” said Prashant Aggarwal, CEO of MoneyHero. “I also want to offer congratulations to Rohith Murthy on his promotion. Rohith’s expertise and dedication have been instrumental in MoneyHero’s ability to offer our users the best available financial products that align with the fast-evolving consumer finance trends throughout the APAC region. With Rohith’s promotion and the new capital raised through our Nasdaq listing last quarter, we are now poised to further surpass our competitors and build sustained market share through both organic and strategic M&A opportunities.”
To support the Company’s growth, MoneyHero will accelerate its recruiting and talent acquisition efforts across all brands and markets in 2024. The Company plans to hire senior executives and supporting team members throughout several departments, including engineering and technology, marketing and sales, finance, and operations.
Mr. Aggarwal added: “We are building a special team here at MoneyHero; one that shares a vision for the future of APAC’s digital economy and the innovations that will shape it. It is an honor to work with so many talented professionals, and we look forward to building out the team further in the year ahead.”
