    Goals / Remit

    The Open Finance Association represents companies focused on empowering consumers and businesses through opening up financial data and payments. We believe secure, open APIs (application programming interfaces) are key to competition and innovation in this space. ​

    Enable consumers and businesses to access their data across all their financial accounts, and make use of it, via trusted third party providers.

    Develop and drive adoption of a competitive and convenient instant payment method based on open payments.

    Promote a sustainable, well-functioning Open Finance ecosystem by creating the right balance of requirements and incentives.

    Main EU files targeted

    Payment Services Directive 2, Instant Payments Regulation, Digital Euro initiative, e-ID, Payments Services Regulation, Financial Data Access Proposal, Anti-Money Laundering Package
