Revolut launches open banking for retail and business customers

11 februarie 2020

Digital bank Revolut today announced the launch of open banking for all UK retail and business customers as it ramps up its challenge against money management rivals.

The new feature allows UK customers to connect their external bank accounts to Revolut’s platform, allowing them to view all their balances in one app.

Open banking was introduced in the UK two years ago in a bid to help consumers and small businesses by making it easier to share data across different finance providers.

Revolut said its new offering, built in partnership with software provider True Layer, would give customers greater control over the financial lives.

“With the launch of our new open banking feature, UK customers can now view and manage multiple external bank accounts, enabling them to interpret their day to day spending across all of their accounts, with the added benefit of making our offering even more relevant, user-friendly, faster and more cost-efficient for our customers,” said Joshua Fernandes, product owner for open banking at Revolut.

“We’re delighted to see that new legislation such as open banking is changing our financial landscape for the better, and I’m proud that Revolut and True Layer are at the forefront of this experience.”

„O singură provizie am făcut, de card, pentru că nu mai umblu cu banii în buzunar. Banii sunt cei mai periculoși când este vorba de răspândirea unei molimi. Am renunțat la cash. În rest, este o prostie să faci provizii. Dacă vine o molimă și nici nu știi când va ajunge, dacă ar fi să se întindă, pe cât timp să poți să faci provizii? Faci provizii pe trei săptămâni, pe patru săptămâni și mai departe?”, a spus consultantul.


In 23 septembrie 2019, BNR a anuntat infiintarea unui Fintech Innovation Hub pentru a sustine inovatia in domeniul serviciilor financiare si de plata. In acest sens, care credeti ca ar trebui sa fie urmatorul pas al bancii centrale in 2020?
