Success stories for institutions like IBAS
In recent years, the digitalization of the financial industry, especially the banking sector, has taken a very dynamic leap and has successfully managed to create a new era. All this with the aim of eliminating barriers in this industry and maintaining and increasing the benefits of physical and legal citizens. In the wake of this, the European Union has issued various legal norms, one of the most important of which is PSD (Payment Service Directive) 2, which,among other things, it defines the security conditions and obligates the electronic interconnection of financial institutions among themselves, in order to provide PIS (Payment Initiation Service) and AIS (Account Information Service), functions that enable customers of a financial institution to perform transactions with another institution’s technology. Most countries that are not part of the European Union have enacted similar laws and/or regulations to create a legal environment similar to that of PSD2. From this legal and technological spirit and from the attractiveness of the industry, many institutions have been developed, and some of the most popular are: Monzo, which operates in England and is valued at 4.5 billion dollars; Starling, which operates in England and is valued at $3.4 billion; N26, which operates in the European Union and is valued at $9 billion; Revolut, which operates in the European Union and England and is valued at 33 billion; Swish payment based in Sweden and Viva wallet based in Greece, which after a gradual investment of 900 million with a coefficient of 9 has sold 49% to JP Morgan. We remind you that none of these institutions, despite the capacities they have, enable the realization of digital payments without a card, without a smart phone, without a smart watch, without biometric signs, as IBAS will do.
