“As businesses navigate the pandemic, the need for cash flow management has become critical”, commented Moula CEO Aris Allegos. We launched Moula Pay 12 months ago, and we’ve seen a huge spike in uptake of the product, with a 174% increase in Merchants onboarded since March. ”

“We’ve just released our integration with Xero, enabling seamless payment of Xero invoices using Moula Pay. This will enable us to empower thousands more SMEs across Australia with a smarter way to pay.


Virgil is a virtual insurance nerd that will help customers leverage the value from free insurance products available within credit cards – Empowering people to unlock value from the everyday.

Virgil reads the policies because we know customers generally won’t and if they did its hard to get clarity around what is covered and what is not. We help customers make informed decisions and only pay for the insurance cover they need.

“Virgil has spent the past 18 months establishing core distribution linked to Travel Insurance with COVID presenting an opportunity to accelerate the development of our service offering to support warranty and price related covers.”
