BNP Paribas Fortis and Tink announce partnership
Belgium’s leading bank BNP Paribas Fortis has partnered with Tink to integrating our aggregation, Personal Finance Management (PFM) and payment initiation technology in its mobile banking applications.
The first step in the partnership will be the release of the new multi-banking app for Hello Bank! later this summer. Tink and BNP Paribas Fortis are also working together to update the Easy Banking App, Fortis’ mobile banking service by autumn.
Our aggregation product allows for the aggregation of any financial information that is typically available in banks’ mobile apps. The partnership is part of BNP Paribas Fortis’ wider plans to enhance user experience and build new, innovative services for their customers under the new payment services directive (PSD2).
“We strongly believe that technology and changing legislation, such as PSD2, offer exciting opportunities,” says Max Jadot, CEO of BNP Paribas Fortis. “Customers can expect increased convenience and remain at all times in control of their data.
“Working closely with successful fintechs and integrating them into our ecosystem is part of the DNA of our bank,” he says. “We are thrilled to team up with Tink in view of enhancing our client’s convenience while continuing to guarantee the same high level of protection of client data.”
This partnership is Tink’s first in the Belgian market, and follows our last wave of partnerships announced in October 2017 – including Nordea, Nordnet and Klarna.
“We are beyond excited to partner with such a forward-leaning bank,” says our CEO Daniel Kjellén. “We share a view on what the future of open banking will look like, and this partnership is proof that the retail banking market is becoming fully transparent and customer-centric. The innovators that choose to invest in technology early will gain insights that can attract new customers and expand existing ones.”
