Visa Introduces Open Banking Solution in the US in Collaboration with Tink

Visa, a global leader in payment solutions, has unveiled its latest endeavor in the United States: an open banking offering facilitated by its recently acquired partner, Tink, as stated in Fintech Global News.

The initiative, as reported by Finextra, marks Visa’s foray into the realm of open banking, allowing users across the US to seamlessly link their accounts and authorize trusted entities to access their financial data.

Through a consolidated interface, users gain access to a spectrum of financial functionalities, ranging from verifying account information to conducting real-time balance inquiries and retrieving transaction details from a multitude of banks scattered throughout the nation.

The integration of Tink’s technology into Visa’s ecosystem ensures a secure and efficient open banking experience, tailored to meet the evolving demands of both consumers and businesses alike.

Visa’s CEO, Ryan McInerny, emphasized the strategic significance of the collaboration, stating, «Just about two years ago we acquired Tink as we saw opportunity in open banking. Over those two years, we have been expanding our presence in Europe, winning deals with Adyen and Revolut. We’re now expanding open banking solutions through Tink into the United States.»

The move comes at a time when open banking is gaining traction among American consumers, with a recent survey commissioned by Visa revealing that a remarkable 87 percent of respondents are already leveraging various forms of open banking to integrate their financial accounts with third-party services.

However, despite the widespread adoption, there remains a significant gap in consumer awareness, with only 34 percent of respondents fully cognizant of the capabilities unlocked by open banking. In light of this, Visa has embarked on a consumer education initiative aimed at shedding light on the manifold benefits offered by open banking services.

The venture signifies Visa’s commitment to driving innovation within the financial landscape, with the integration of open banking poised to redefine the dynamics of financial interactions in the US market.
