Comply with PSD2 and unleash the potential of the API economy

The revised Payment Services Directive (PSD2) has removed the market barriers and accelerated the need for differentiation in a competitive and globalized banking industry. Nowadays, the first challenge of banks as Account Servicing Payment Service Providers (ASPSPs) is to open up regulatory APIs to authorised Third-Party Providers (TPPs) in order to meet legal requirements. Besides managing the Payment Service User (PSU) consent and ensuring the access to the desired service, the ASPSP is also expected, in particular but not only, to manage the TPP community and follow up updates on regulatory requirements and API standards..

As one of the leading Open Banking providers we already equipped more than 30 financial institutions with a PSD2 compliance module, enabling them to effortlessly meet the regulatory requirements and develop their Open Banking strategy while managing the risks and mitigating uncertainty.

The challenge of ‘Open Banking’ for financial institutions extends beyond the opening of APIs to meet regulatory constraints and we believe this directive is a strong catalyst for the API Economy in Europe. Facilitating the access to bank data by Third-Party Providers is the most visible part of the regulation, but banks can also benefit from integrating new services seamlessly into their product catalogue or exposing additional APIs to partners.

Our solution is designed to help financial institutions to leverage their existing assets, to develop strong API management capabilities and to integrate their existing services seamlessly through any channel (mobile, web, voice, etc.). 

We empower them to overcome the limitations and constraints associated with their legacy system and therefore accelerate their digital transformation at low cost and with short time-to-market. By improving their overall digital capabilities and enriching their catalogue of services with the services of equensWorldline and our FinTechs partners, banks can eventually develop breakthrough use cases and capture the customer relationship.
