Nordea is to provide its mobile banking customers with account aggregation and personal financial management tools from Swedish vendor Tink.
Tink’s account aggregation have been integrated into Nordea’s mobile banking app to deliver a personalised financial overview for the bank’s customers in Sweden, Norway, Finland and Denmark. „The new app features will be rolled out gradually by Nordea in the Nordic markets — starting with Sweden, today.”, according to the press release.
Open banking platform Tink and the leading Nordic bank Nordea have worked together to add new multi-banking features to Nordea’s mobile banking app. The new features will make it possible for Nordea’s app users to get a comprehensive overview of their finances in one place, including mortgage, savings, loans and current account — even from other banks.
„From today, these new features will be available to customers in Sweden using Nordea’s app, with the same capabilities due to launch in Norway, Finland and Denmark in the coming months. Additional features based on Tink’s open banking technologies — including the possibility for Nordea’s app users to categorise costs, analyse their spending and set budgets— will be added to the app later this year.”, Tink said.
Anders Nicander, Head of One Digital, Nordea, said: “Nordea is dedicated to providing great digital experiences, and we want to be seen as a relevant partner to our customers. As part of that, Nordea is happy to see that our customer experience in the Nordea Mobile App is improved through our collaboration with Tink. Providing Swedish customers a more complete financial overview is our first delivery together with Tink. Now we look forward to bringing this to our other markets and at the same time develop other exciting functionalities based on Tink technology.”
Daniel Kjellén, co-founder and CEO of Tink, added: “Our open banking technology has already helped millions of bank customers across Europe to get a better overview and understanding of their finances. We are very proud to now make our technology available to almost 11 million bank customers in Sweden, Norway, Finland and Denmark through our partnership with Nordea.”
Through one API, Tink allows customers to access aggregated financial data, initiate payments, enrich transactions and build personal finance management tools. Today, Tink has more than 270 employees globally and claims it is Europe’s leading open banking platform — enabling customers to connect to more than 2,500 banks that reach over 250 million bank customers across Europe. The company was launched in Sweden in 2012.
„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.
