Beyond Open: The bank as a TPP

Open Banking is firmly on the menu around the world at varying stages of actual progress. But ‘Open’ is not enough. ’Beyond Open banking’ is all about creating instant, relevant and contextual experiences that truly bring value to customers of banking services. For this we need two things: Consent from the (business) customers to access their relevant data and a viable and realistic set of services that benefits both the bank or financial service provider and their customers. With the consent centric BankiFi foundation and its value add corporate and business solutions, banks can extend their customer relationships in a model that is financially sustainable and built for growth. This way we help global financial services providers to open up their business to external (fintech) partners in a way that is safe, easy to use, monitor and monetise.

If Banks take the opportunity to act as TPPs themselves, they have the opportunity of understanding what their business customers do with other competitive banks, and fintechs. This way banks can generate fair fee based income by charging flexible rates for those services and insights and to the fintechs that use the bank’s app store as the last mile to the customer.

Business Banking First

At BankiFi we focus on the business banking segment: underserved, unconnected. Banks realise that what they offer is often product driven, inflexible and not ‘easy to use, fair and transparent’ as has become today’s norm. As fintechs appeared offering niche, attractive, easy to manage and often cheaper exchanges etc., business users started to meander through this unconnected forest of parties vying for their business. As the fintech community grew, businesses were inundated with alternatives for lending, financing, currency trade, etc. Offering benefit yes but also adding complexity and still not offering what they need the most: an integrated overview on the financials of their business, actionable insights and access through the two channels they know and work with: their accounting package and their bank account.

Consent and Collaboration

BankiFi is more than a ‘piece of code’, it is a company and a team that puts consent and collaboration at the core of its way of working. As we build tools for a fairer and more transparent world, that is open to new ideas and young talent, we realise it must also add to a sustainable and profitable future. This can only mean one thing: the ‘how’ must reinforce the ‘what’ we do.

The BankiFi Manifest:

A promise to banks and their business customers

Entrepreneurs need financial services around their business challenges delivered in a manner that fits their busy daily lives: fair, simple, secure, time saving and fit for future growth. With today’s technology and the open banking/PSD2 regulation banks and other service providers can offer just that – reaching out to lean in. BankiFi’s technology is the white-labelled solution for ‘banks that get it’, built today to last beyond tomorrow.

Beyond Open: entrepreneurs need and deserve it, banks can do it: BankiFi enables it.
