The concept of Open Banking has been accelerated by the European-led Payments Services Directive (PSD2) which enables regulated Third Party Providers (TPPs) access to customer’s bank accounts via secure APIs. While PSD2 is a European directive, it has implications beyond Europe on global Open Banking requirements and it’s impact is being replicated globally within other international law.
This increasing scope and competition that open banking enables in the banking ecosystem has led to both new opportunities and new challenges for financial institutions.
What is the Impact of PSD2 in Banking?
Open Banking is as much about the establishment of an improved IT architecture as it is about structural change across the banking industry. PSD2 in Europe has become a catalyst causing the reassessment of the industry’s perception, understanding and willingness to embrace Open Banking.
How Should You Respond to Open Banking?
Banks are likely to respond to the directive by not merely complying with local regulations, but by exploiting any local directive to create new business models aimed at creating new and deeper relationships with customers and generating new revenue streams. Temenos provides support for both aspects.
