CreditLadder receives FCA approval for payments

Thursday 22 November 2018 13:48 CET | News

UK-based fintech CreditLadder has been approved by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) as a payment institute.

This move allows CreditLadder to organise and request payments on behalf of consumers from their bank to a business’ bank account as an approved payment initiation service (PIS).

PIS gives CreditLadder the ability to initiate payments on behalf of SMEs across any industry, as well as show dashboards with customers’ financial information as an approved account information service (AIS) provider on request.

CreditLadder is one of the 15 companies in the UK to be registered for both AIS and PIS.

AIS and PIS have been made possible by the revised Payment Services Directive or PSD2, which earlier this year brought payment companies like CreditLadder into the regulatory fold.
