Nordea launches Open Banking in Sweden

Friday 14 September 2018 | 02:10 PM CET

Nordea has extended Open Banking to Sweden, giving developers the possibility to begin building applications designed for both Finnish and Swedish customers.

Nordea’s Open Banking platform was launched at the end of 2017 when Finnish customer data was made available to third party developers. Nordea was one of the first banks in Europe to see the potential opportunities offered by PSD2 (Payment Services Directive) regulations which require banks to open up to third parties to offer services to account holders. Since the launch of Open Banking, more than 2500 developers have registered to test Nordea’s APIs.

Extending Open Banking into Sweden gives developers the possibility to begin building applications designed for both Finnish and Swedish customers. Following the launch, test data is available to everyone in Nordea’s Developer portal. To access real customer data, third parties are required to obtain a PSD2 licence from the relevant national financial authority.

Nordea’s Open Banking team are now working on extending the services to Denmark and Norway.

Developers will be able to use the Account Information Service (AIS) API where they can retrieve account information details and initiate payments through the Payment Initiation Service (PIS) API. The end users, Nordea customers, will be able to authenticate themselves, and give consent to the third-party providers to access their accounts.
