Success Story

Since Open Banking launched at the beginning of 2018 Equifax have partnered with consents.online, a registered Account Information Services Provider, to deliver a number of firsts within the UK market.  Together we delivered the first live use case of Open Banking, enabling HSBC to streamline their underwriting processes through the submission of customer transaction data.

More recently, we have released an innovative new solution which provides an enhanced layer of customer authentication to ensure the consumer submitting their bank transaction data is who they say they are and therefore reduce the potential for fraud.
