The process of digital transformation that the financial sector is undergoing, with API Economy supporting Open Banking, is an element of change for the banking sector and enables the development of new sales channels, new partnerships and the opportunity to offer new services. With the advent of the PSD2, innovation will see the definition of real new financial ecosystems, where the interconnection between leading companies in the management of specific asset classes and the banking system will create important opportunities for everyone, savers first and foremost.
Leveraging the opportunities opened up by the PSD2 regulation and the innovative Open Banking platforms, the launch of CONTO LINGOTTO® and the creation of a dedicated App, developed in-house, allow for direct online customer acquisition, in addition to that brokered by the traditional financial system. The CONTO LINGOTTO® solution aims at maximum customisation and white label integration in all partner, banking, fintech and financial distribution networks with high flexibility thanks to the API Economy.
