2018 is a big year for financial services, with the second payment services directive – otherwise known as PSD2 – set to transform how consumers manage and spend their money. By forcing banks to share customer account and payment details with third parties – where authorised by the customer – the new regulations will finally loosen the grip of the established players on the market, paving the way for a host of new products and services.

Five ways fintech innovators are capitalising on PSD2

PSD2 has identified two types of third party providers; AISPs (Account Information Service Providers) and PISPs (Payment Initiation Service Providers). An AISP is any business that uses a customer's account information to aggregate their financial information in one place, to help them track their spending or plan their finances. A PISP is any company that initiates online payments on behalf of the user, offering an alternative to the use of a card or online banking.

PSD2 is a potential gold mine for fintech, which has the chance to capture even more of the banks' traditional territory, and revolutionise the banking experience for customers.
