We are Moneycatcha Pty Ltd

Connecting you with the truth by creating systems that drive ultimate speed, efficiency and security.

The Story

From over two decades in financial services, we recognised the common challenges for all financial institutions (FI’s) in the mortgage origination process. We analysed the entire landscape and assessed every pressure point and challenge in the industry.

We realised that the most suitable and capable technology for this ecosystem to work cohesively, efficiently and most importantly securely, is the blockchain. Knowing this, we developed a bespoke blockchain platform that operates on permission based principals, enabling the most secure, protected and efficient transactions in the finance industry. That platform is developed, hosted and supported in Australia, providing complete regulatory comfort for FI’s.

We have created a world-class platform with the capability to solve each and every one of the challenges facing FI’s with a market-changing solution. In addition, we have built the platform to integrate and communicate with the whole mortgage ecosystem. A requirement we know will be necessary for any sustainable solution in the mortgage space in the future.

The Solutions

Our best in class digital platforms Homechain and Regchain, deliver world first solutions for the mortgage origination and risk review processes in any financial institution. By engaging our innovative technology, you are future proofing your organisation against increased, fraud, risk and regulatory pressures in an unrivalled, secure and efficient manner.
