Moneytree, the parent company of Australian open banking vendor Financial Technology, says it will use the funds to further expand its open banking data platform, Moneytree LINK, in Japan as well as in Australia where it has been operating since 2017.

The Series C round follows strategic investment by Mitsubishi UFJ Innovation Partners, Sony Financial Ventures and NTT Data in March last year.

Chief executive and founder of Moneytree Paul Chapman said, “Our mission is to bring people, businesses and institutions closer together to help everybody be better off”.  

“Moneytree LINK, our financial data platform for individuals and businesses, was created with security, privacy, and transparency at its core and gives individuals full control of how, where and with whom their personal financial data is shared. 

“We now have 4.5 million platform users and over 60 enterprise partners, and with the implementation of the Consumer Data Right and Open Banking in Australia this year, we foresee a significant expansion of our business.”
