We're Sweden's First Authorised AISP Fintech Under PSD2

Sep 25, 2018 / by Simon Edström - CEO

We're proud to announce we’ve been approved to operate as an Account Information Service Provider (AISP) in Sweden, by the Swedish FSA (Finansinspektionen). We’re the first authorised AISP FinTech in the country, allowing us to build and provide better and even more relevant services.

The Swedish FSA's approval means we can continue developing products that support consumers to prove their true financial capacity. We see it as an important step in helping the financing industry to digitise its processes, as well as a significant step for the future of our company.

Banking Innovation: Lessons From FinTech

Sep 12, 2018 / by Simon Edström - CEO

Since the 2008 financial crisis, the banking landscape has undergone a seismic shift to a new age of innovation and digital transformation, marked by the advent of FinTechs companies. By observing and often experiencing first-hand what banks offer – or do not offer – these new entrants have targeted what consumers perceive as the failings of banks to capture significant market shares.

6% of global consumers have shifted their primary banking relationship from traditional banks to newer companies  with better technologies and simpler products. This percentage is on track for continued growth. In 2015, one in seven digitally active consumers was using FinTech. In just two years, that number has risen to one in three. The banking landscape is fast moving from an era in which a handful of big banks dominated global markets. This is a significant shift in the banking landscape: one that’s driven by radical changes in consumer preferences and underpinned in part by a generational gap.
