Cost-effectively comply with PSD2 requirements with our XS2A solutions

With the implementation of PSD2 in 2018 the financial landscape will change in an exceptional manner. The most tangible result of the new directive is that banks need to ensure that account holders are able to initiate an online payment and retrieve their account information online via a third-party providers (TPPs). Of course, this can happen only with the consent of the account holder, and only when this third party is licensed and registered.

This directive creates a whole new playing field, where non-financial companies and new FinTech companies will enter the financial market. PSD2 will fundamentally change the payments value chain, the business models and customer expectations. We help banks and TPPs to become compliant providers of XS2A services and we enable them to seize the opportunities PSD2 brings along.

Do you recognize these challenges?

  • How do I provide access in a safe and secure way?
  • How should I deal with new technology like APIs?
  • How to get ready before 2018?
  • How to position myself? As a bank or also as a TPP?
  • What does it bring me? Is it a threat or an opportunity? Or both?
  • As a third party, how can I reach all the banks?
