Published Date : Sep 26, 2016

Albany, NY, Sep 26, 2016: has announced the addition of a new market intelligence study to its growing market research repository. The report, titled ‘Preparing For PSD2 And Open Banking,’ examines the impact of the initiation of the EU’s latest directive on payment services (PSD2), aimed at making it easier for Europeans to carry out financial transactions across national borders. The event is a crucial one for Europe’s BFSI sector and significant restructuring may be needed to comply with the new directive.

The EU’s payment directive aims to make it easier for Europeans to make cashless euro payments across national borders and the accompanying financial frameworks without having to change platforms. This calls for a unification of the financial protocols, standards, and infrastructure used across a significant part of Europe, which is a massive task. One of the key takeaways in the report deals with this, recommending players in Europe’s BFSI sector to view the incorporation of PSD2 guidelines as a fundamental model change rather than a mere compliance requirement.

One of the key benefits of open banking, as advocated by the PSD2, is that control of customer data is given over to the customers rather than the banks. This is a crucial update given the current concern about virtual security and the adverse consequences of even a slight slip in the same. On the other hand, PSD2 has the potential to act against customer loyalty by making all banking institutions share the same platform, instruments, and standards.
