TrueLayer, the leading technology company building financial infrastructure that’s open to any business, anywhere in the world, today announced the extension of its partnership with digital smart open banking app sync. to include France and Ireland.

The sync. app promises to manage every aspect of a user’s financial life in one place. Its ultimate goal is to help customers budget, spend and track their money in one place, offering a unique user experience as a money management platform with tailored insights.

sync. does this by utilising Open Banking powered by TrueLayer’s market-leading data API to deliver a single view across all of a users’ bank accounts. 

sync. users can now seamlessly and securely connect their Irish bank accounts including AIB, Permanent TSB, Ulster Bank and Bank of Ireland, and French banks accounts including Banque Populaire, BNP Paribas, Crédit Agricole, Crédit Mutuel and Société Générale.

This expansion is a further step towards sync.’s ultimate goal of helping customers across Europe budget, manage and track their money from one dashboard, as one experience.

Francesco Simoneschi, CEO and co-founder of TrueLayer, commented: “sync. is a highly ambitious company using Open Banking to help consumers do more with their money. By offering insights and tailored recommendations, delivered through a seamless experience, it is empowering users to make more informed decisions. We’ve already seen our collaboration broaden to include Spain and we’re happy to now support sync. on its European growth journey as it moves into France and Ireland.”

Ricky Lee, CEO and co-founder of sync., said: “This is the next step in our mission to connect all our user’s financial accounts across Europe. We’re excited to enable our French and Irish customers to connect their existing bank accounts, allowing them to see all their accounts, all the time. We are looking to expand our list of supported banks even more in the coming months, working with our great partners such as TrueLayer.”
