Nordea vision

We are ready for the future of APIs

Open Banking will fundamentally shift banking in the way Internet Banking did more than a decade ago. We will see many new ways of distributing banking products. In the end this creates more choice and value for customers. Nordea will open developer services to actively collaborate with developers. Let's create future banking services for Nordea's customers together!

The revised Payment Services Directive (PSD2) will shake the foundations of banking: Introducing Open APIs into banking

The PSD2’s goal is to level the playing field between FinTechs and incumbent banks, thereby throwing a traditionally slow moving sector into high-gear. Banks will be obliged to provide licensed third parties secure access to customers’ accounts, resulting in increased value for customers.

We see this as an opportunity to embrace the changing landscape

Our goal is to strengthen our collaboration with FinTechs and go beyond the regulation by providing premium APIs which fit your needs. We are looking to become the go-to hub for banking APIs in the Nordics.

How will this affect our customers?

Nordea will continue to be a relationship bank and as such we are putting our customers first. Open Banking will provide customers with various new products and services while keeping the customers firmly in control of what data they wish to expose and which products they wish to use.
