PSD2: Where Customers Call the Shots

Change, in all its forms, brings with it concern and unrest, but also huge opportunity.

Particularly when change is imposed, it is often hard to see beyond the regulations and embrace the possibilities.  Banking, having experienced relatively little change in recent times, is now on the cusp of considerable transformation in the shape of PSD2, or the Revised Payment Service Directive.

Aggregate Or Die? The Reality Facing Banks

But, if we aggregate other banks’ clients’ information, we would have to allow third parties  to aggregate our own clients. Would this mean a loss of custom and put our current business model at risk?

What should our strategy be? Should we be “First Movers” or followers? And what will the PSD2 regulation force us to do?”

The FinTech world is buzzing about PSD2. Should banks be worried?
