Wednesday 31 August 2022 12:45 CET | News

US-based financial data platform MX has become a Nacha preferred partner for risk management and fraud prevention.


In becoming a Preferred Partner, MX joins a select group of innovators that Nacha recognises for offering products and services that align with Nacha’s core strategies to advance the ACH Network.

MX’s open finance APIs enable financial data aggregation so consumers can reliably connect their financial accounts. In doing so, MX collaborates with thousands of organisations, enabling identification and instant account verification (IAV). This alliance makes the account opening process easy, while improving the data sharing experience for financial institutions, fintechs, and other third parties, on behalf of the consumer.

MX’s officials explained that they seek to guarantee that people can not only access and understand their finances, but also have peace of mind. A vibrant ACH Network ensures secure and reliable access to financial data that comes from having solid risk management and fraud prevention capabilities in place.
