Open Banking

Open banking is set to have a major impact on the financial services industry. In the last few years, open APIs have gained traction and financial institutions are revisiting their channel and partner strategies accordingly. The revised Payment Service Direct, known as PSD2, is one of the driving forces behind this evolution but financial institutions in other geographies are also starting to explore the potential of using open APIs to drive new customer propositions.

API Digital

API Banking creates an environment that fosters innovation and allows delivering value added services to end users while still protecting the customer’s sensitive data. Banks will need to provide secure API access to basic services when aiming for compliance with regulations such as PSD2 – but most banks are exploring their options to extend the scope of their open banking project in order to monetize the investments made to open up their existing back end systems
