With a customer base of approximately six million people across Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Finland, Resurs Bank is the leading niche bank with extensive experience in developing flexible payment and financing solutions for both retailers and their customers. 

With the banking industry in rapid transition due to modernised customer behaviour and increased competition from new types of companies, Resurs Bank believes that leveraging on the opportunities that open banking brings is crucial to keep delivering the best market solutions and stay ahead of the competition. 

With access to financial data and account-to-account payments from Nordic API Gateway, Resurs Bank will be able to optimise and improve the customer experience across the Nordics.

Commenting on the partnership, Casper Wahlström, Program Manager, Strategic Office of Resurs Bank says:

PSD2 and our strategic partnership with Nordic API Gateway allow us to act now and stay ahead of the complex competition and new requirements through efficiency and innovation. The partnership is an important step for us to act even more data-driven and purposeful towards a better experience for the customers.”
