PSD2 Explained

A number of changes are taking place in the area of payment services. These changes relate to a new European directive PSD2 (Payment Services Directive). One of the main objectives of PSD2 is to boost competition and innovation in the area of payment services.

The most significant change for ABN AMRO customers is that they will be able to give licensed third parties access to their current accounts. For the customer, this will enhance and create new experiences.

Alongside banks, other companies and organizations will be able to access account information and initiate payment services. Customer permission is required.
