The Payment Services Directive 2 was designed to encourage innovation and competition by opening the market to non-bank providers and stimulating banks to develop innovative services outside traditional banking. Therefore it obliges the banks to give authorized access to their customer accounts for retrieving bank account data and initiating account-based payments.

Competition and innovation are massive for the financial service sector. Insurance companies can use these new functionalities to develop customer-centric products by accessing their customers’ bank accounts and payment information.
