About Versa


We are a FinTech startup building a digital cash management platform to help Malaysians from all walks of life unlock the potential of their idle cash. Our platform introduces an innovative alternative to fixed deposits where users can gain higher returns while benefiting from Versa’s flexibility that allows users to withdraw their cash plus daily interests earned at any moment without incurring penalties. Dedicated to helping users get the best out of their sleeping funds, Versa is focused on making our suite of user-friendly cash management solutions more accessible to all Malaysians.


What is our product trying to solve?

Retail and Small Medium Enterprises (SMEs) are faced with very low interest rates in savings accounts or a lack of liquidity in fixed deposits. Our first product aims to transform your sleeping cash into money-earning potential through return rates similar to the interest of a Fixed Deposit. But with Versa, you can ‘duit’ your way and enjoy the freedom to withdraw your savings at any moment without penalties.


What learning opportunities/initiatives do we have?

We encourage learning the latest best practices and new technologies and we do everything within reason to provide the tools and courses to learn them.
