The UK’s open banking journey has been a bit different compared to other countries in Europe, and this has given them an edge – leading to a more mature environment. Here’s our take on what has contributed to their success.
Tink’s new survey report finds that a majority of financial executives in the UK foresee a permanent impact from the pandemic – unlike their European peers. We take a closer look at the UK stats, and how they compare to the EU-wide results.

Rafael Plantier, our new UK & Ireland Country Manager, arrives at Tink with a motto: open banking is good only once people get to enjoy the fruits of their data.

For respondents in the UK, ‘other incumbent banks’ came up as the single biggest threat brought by the open access to data.
In our first UK partnership, we’re helping NatWest use open banking tech to transform its mobile banking app, and improve how customers manage their money.
This is the last piece of our three-part Project Win UK series. In parts one and two, we lifted the lid on our challenge to go live in the UK, and showed how we integrated with the banks and built our categorisation model.

Here comes the second piece of our three-part Project Win UK series. In part one, we showed how our engineers smashed expectations to launch Tink in the UK in four weeks.

This is the first piece in a three-part Project Win UK series, where we take you behind the scenes and show you how we enter a new market, how we think about technology – and how we challenge ourselves to do it better, faster, stronger.
