The Danish Fintech, Nordic API Gateway, is on fast-track to become the leading PSD2 infrastructure in the Nordics for banks, startups, retails and ERP providers.
Today, they’re announcing a new partnership with Norway's largest bank, DNB, who will use the API to offer their customers a full overview of their finances across all banks in DNB’s new mobile banking app.
- “We’re happy that DNB has chosen us to provide account aggregation for their new mobile app. We see DNB as a strong and innovative bank at the forefront of digital banking solutions. As one of the most reliable and secure PSD2 infrastructure platforms, we believe it’s a clear advantage for DNB to use our API. One of the reasons why DNB chose us is that our API offers a very broad coverage in the Nordics. We cover the vast majority of all Scandinavian banks, and as opposed to other API aggregators, we support access to both personal and business accounts, which means that our client can build solutions for anyone.” Rune Mai, CEO of Nordic API Gateway, says.
- “PSD2 creates new opportunities and increases competition in the industry. We should definitely take advantage of the opportunities that PSD2 opens up for, and we want to be an actor that helps guide these changes. With Nordic API Gateway, we have a unique opportunity to aggregate account information from other players in order to present it to the customer in the mobile bank.” says Ingjerd Blekeli Spiten, Group Executive Vice President Retail banking at DNB.
Nordic API Gateway is providing a simple unified API access to both personal and business accounts from all Nordic banks. The fintech is currently assisting major banks such as Danske Bank and Jyske Bank in Denmark and a various number of start-ups, retails and ERP providers. Soon, the fintech company will also include a smart way to initiate payments directly from account to account.
- “It’s important for us to help both big enterprises and smaller startups to innovate new financial solutions. With PSD2, the financial industry in Europe is about to change significantly as customers will be in charge of their own financial data. In this way, companies have the opportunity to build the best solutions. We’re proud to be giving that opportunity to a bank like DNB, who will now have a clear advantage in giving their customers a better experience and enable financial management in one place.” Rune Mai, CEO of Nordic API Gateways says.
Nordic API Gateway is moving fast to onboard new customers and have already many interesting international and local companies in line.
“We have more than a hundred companies working on empowering their solutions with Nordic API Gateway from all kinds of industries at the moment. Our goal is to help all companies innovate and build smart solutions for the benefit of their customers whether that’s B2B or B2C.” Rune Mai ends.
