Belvo launches Recurring Expenses, a new data enrichment solution

Thursday 18 November 2021 11:27 CET | News

Open Banking API platform Belvo has developed Recurring expenses, a new data enrichment solution that allows financial innovators to automatically identify consumers’ recurrent expenses for subscription services.

The solution provides an instant picture of users’ monthly recurring expenses with a particular focus on subscriptions. 

One can use Belvo API to get an instant picture of what users are spending on this type of service, analyse the impact it can have on their financial wellbeing, as well as provide them with more personalised insights on how to improve it.

The main goal of this new product is to provide greater insights into users’ most common spending habits on subscription services (like Netflix, the gym, or Amazon Prime), frequent utility payments (like internet or electricity), as well as other cyclical payments they might make (such as loan repayments and common transfers to friends).

Using these data points, companies can easily and quickly assess their customers’ repayment risk as well as offer them advice on how to improve their financial health.

Recurrent expenses can be defined as payments that take place on a regular basis (weekly, monthly, or annually) and are periodical transactions of a household or an individual.

The solution covers data coming from checking and credit card accounts.

The new solution uses Belvo’s API to extract financial information from the +50 top retail banks in Latin America (which represents more than 90% of market coverage). Then, our data science model processes this raw information to accurately identify the recurring transactions and display them in a format that’s easy to interpret and ready to use.

By leveraging the data retrieved from accounts, transactions, and transactions’ frequency, our model allows companies to instantly get clear insights into their user’s regular payments in a few simple steps:

1. Connect: users connect their financial data using Belvo’s widget and a link is created.
2. Enrich: Belvo aggregates and enriches their financial data every time you request an update.

3. Access: we return full information about your customers’ recurring outflows.
