Enfuce approved as an authorized payment institution

Finland’s biggest fintech start-up Enfuce has been accredited as
an authorised payment institution by the Finnish Financial Supervisory Authority
(FIN-FSA)*. Customers pursuing new opportunities introduced through the second
Payment Services Directive (PSD2), can now perform account information and payment initiation services together with Enfuce.

With the Payment Institution license, Enfuce can now unlock a variety of opportunities for its
customers. A multitude of companies such as insurance companies, accounting bureaus and
mobile network operators can now benefit from the PSD2 regulation through Enfuce offering.

Enfuce’s Open Banking Hub enables customers to retrieve account information and initiate
payments from end users’ bank accounts. The account information service provides access to a
new set of data which has not been available before, and the payment initiation service can be
integrated into existing payment processes in mobile apps and e-commerce sites.

“Becoming an authorized payment institution is a major milestone for us. We can now serve an
even wider group of customers and drive our vision of open banking for everyone,” said Denise
Johansson, CEO and Co-Founder at Enfuce.

“In addition to delivering effective connectivity to our existing licensed customers with our Open
Banking Hub, we can now introduce the same service to other customers. We manage the
regulatory compliance and technical connectivity, letting our customers focus on designing the
service experience and branding”, Johansson added.

Enfuce is currently onboarding customers to the service in the Nordics and expanding it to all
countries within the European Union.

Payment Institution license and is under the supervision of Finnish Financial Supervisory
Authority
