    #OpenBanking

    OPEN REVOLUTION

    Growing demand for choice and flexibility when managing our finances has driven the open banking revolution worldwide.  By safely sharing certain financial data with trusted, innovative financial services and apps, we open up new ways to understand, forecast, and control our financial health.  Slow, error-prone, and manual application processes for products such as loans and mortgages could be streamlined by allowing controlled access to data that was once siloed in a bank’s systems.

    Handled the right way, banks can tap into the open banking marketplace and connect third-party services to enhance their own offerings; creating opportunities to retain and grow their customer base.  Backbase is on a mission to help our customers accelerate their delivery of an open banking platform that can bring end-users unprecedented convenience and choice, whilst helping achieve compliance with local regulation such as PSD2.
