With PSD2’s Regulatory Technical Standards (RTS) deadline passed, European FIs are under pressure to move quickly to deliver open APIs for testing. The Token and Konsentus partnership enables FIs to fast track PSD2 compliance by connecting to a managed combination of two best-of-breed open banking technology platforms.
By connecting banks and FIs to its SaaS PSD2 API, Token can provide the functionality required by the RTS including readiness for external testing and readiness for full production by 14 September. Konsentus’ SaaS platform simultaneously conducts automated checking and verification of TPPs that are requesting data and payment access to banks.
Maximising their open banking connectivity and turning regulatory due diligence into a market differentiator will enable FIs to establish a serious competitive advantage in open banking, as well as establishing PSD2 compliance in the shortest possible timeframe.
The combined solution is based on TokenOSTM which delivers flexible, open APIs and programmable money technology, with the operational support, consent management, monitoring and reporting required to not only achieve compliance and develop new value-added services.
Konsentus provides fully automated (TPP) identity and regulatory checking services that ensure FIs only provide payment initiation and account information data to regulated TPPs which have demonstrably secured their customers’ consent.
Konsentus is a RegTech company that was established to provide consent & preference management services to financial institutions so that they can comply with PSD2 and open banking. Konsentus issue the consent management tokens on behalf of financial institutions through a SaaS platform, enabling them to comply with EU regulation and provide open banking services to their customers, confident in the knowledge that they are only providing data to Third Party Providers (TPPs) who are regulated, and have the customers “explicit” consent to use their data.
The company was founded by three Financial Service industry veterans seeking to deliver a simple and easy way FIs can comply with the new PSD2 regulations for open access.
