SEB in the Baltics is cooperating with Nordigen to test Nordigen's transaction categorization and behavioral analysis capabilities.

With the introduction of its API platform, SEB is already one of the banks at the forefront of delivering open banking infrastructure. While the Payment Services Directive 2 (PSD2) that regulates Open Banking in Europe is yet to be fully adopted, most innovative banks are already investing in solutions and data analytics that will create future value for their clients.

“We're very excited for the opportunity to work with SEB and see our solution being tested by the industry's leading professionals. SEB focuses solely on products that can add clear value to its customers. We can confidently say that the entire Nordigen team is dedicated to supporting these goals,” says Rolands Mesters, co-founder and CEO of Nordigen.

Banks committed to ensuring their customer success need to become early adopters of Open Banking and leverage new opportunities to their advantage. SEB and Nordigen have partnered to test how Nordigen solutions can help SEB reach their strategic goals.

“During 2018 SEB kicked off several Open Banking activities across the Baltic to welcome cooperation with fintechs. Nordigen was among those companies participating and initiating the first cooperation with SEB. It has been a very valuable learning experience to understand to what extent machine learning can be applied to the benefit of our customers,” commented the Head of Digital Strategy Ragnar Toomla at SEB in the Baltics.
