PSDII (Revised Payment Services Directive) is shaking the dynamics of the payment institutions and paves the way to a whole new host of unique and innovative payments systems.
Open Banking obliges banks and other account holding institutions to enable third party ‘account information service providers’ (AISPs) and ‘payment initiation service providers’ (PISPs) to access the payment account data they hold on customers, at those customers’ request, to allow the businesses to provide the customers with their services, unlocking, in fact, a new era of growth driven by digital.
The programme looks in brief at the key provisions of the directive and focuses on the challenges and opportunities banks face today, as well as discussing banking innovation and the digital approach that Banks should take towards a major digital transformation in order to stay ahead of the game, remain competitive and boost digital sales.
