PSD2: Open APIs and Open Banking

Open APIs and Open Banking have grown over time from being a purely technical topic to being a strategic business accelerator that Banks cannot afford ignoring.

In the past decade, digital companies have proved very successful in opening their systems to connect with innovative firms outside their organizations, with the goal of delivering attractive services to their customers when and where the customer needs them. APIs and digitisation allow value to be created in a distributed way through an ecosystem of partners.

PSD2 and the payments ecosystem metamorphosis:

How banks can save the banks


Vansnick With the activation of PSD2 regulation beginning in January 2018 for all EU countries, third parties will get access to financial data of banking customers under the condition that those customers gave their explicit consent. While this new legislation will open up the payment space for new Third Party Providers (TPPs) such as Payment Initiation Service Providers (PISPs) and Account Information Service Providers (AISPs), and as such create an increased competition for payments services traditionally offered by banks, PSD2 will also create new opportunities for corporates and retailers.

How will the landscape for financial services change?
