More information on the launch

The new product represents an important step towards FIS’s strategy of making secure Open Banking more accessible to its users and partners. Agreements are currently in place with multiple data networks, in order to integrate into the Open Access platform. The new Open Banking solution was developed to enable clients to securely and efficiently share their financial information with several third-party financial applications and products of their choice. 

As the shift to Open Banking is accelerating, the Personal Financial Data Rights proposed in 2023 the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), a rule that was expected to establish a consistent set of industry standards for client data access, security, and protection. 

With this in consideration, FIS’ Open Access platform is set to offer clients the possibility to benefit from the flexibility of working with third-party financial services app providers, as well as the capability of controlling what information is shared and who it is shared with. At the same time, customers will be enabled to revoke access at any time, while banks and financial institutions will be given the visibility and the opportunity to report on where their users are sharing financial data, which fintech firms they are interacting with, as well as how frequently the interaction takes place. 

In addition, the Open Access platform will allow for secure and reliable data sharing through the Financial Data Exchange standardised (FDX) APIs. By partnering with multiple industry providers, the solution is expected to have a broad depth of coverage across the market, which will enable FIs that use the platform to optimise the manner in which their users access a wide range of capabilities, opportunities, and experiences by leveraging a broad set of apps and services.
