What is

Open Banking?

Gives users full control over their financial information allowing them to centralize all their account banking operations in a single APP or to receive personalized offers according to their consumption habits.

There is no doubt that open banking has changed the financial landscape forever and brings multiple advantages for banks and FinTech.

Application programming interfaces, or APIs, allow a company’s software to be integrated into third-party platforms in order to facilitate the exchange of data, subject to confirmation by the user, of course.

Thanks to the European PSD2 regulation on electronic payment services, the security of transactions is guaranteed while promoting innovation and the adaptation of the financial sector to new technologies.

Once we have given our consent as users, third party companies may offer us products and services tailored to our individual needs.

In addition, through the categorization and enrichment of bank transactional information, the knowledge of the end user is increased.

This allows the customer to be placed at the center in order to offer the right service at the right time.

This improves their experience, increases their satisfaction with the service and creates a lasting bond that leads to the possibility that they will recommend the bank to family and friends.
