New Market Research Report: Preparing for PSD2 and Open Banking

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Sun Jun 19 2016

The EU's Directive on Payment Services 2 (PSD2) will accelerate the fragmentation of Europe's retail banking industry following the global financial crisis. The opportunities brought about by PSD2 will energize banks with strong brand awareness and advanced digital offerings into pushing the boundaries of open banking. Increased competition from card issuers and non-bank third-party providers will prompt steady mid-cap players to fundamentally evaluate their strategies. Banks that are competing on price may see a future in collaborating with third parties, but in doing so will relinquish control over their customer relationships. Whichever path is chosen, the opportunity to offer, create, or co-create new products and services much more quickly is a positive change for the industry.
