Enabling The Future Of Finance And Identity

10+ years ago, our CEO, James Varga, who had worked in other big FinTech’s (including household names in the UK) felt that there was change in the air. There had been talk of bank data in the UK even before that time, and he knew that if he was able to get in early, that it would take off as there was just so much untapped benefit for consumers. Of course, we weren’t to know at that point that it wouldn’t be until January of 2018 before bank data, what we now call Open Banking, finally became a reality in the UK! We were way ahead of our time, and in many respects, are still leading the curve. We now offer solutions in over thirty countries, with our products based around bank data.

Your bank holds all kind of information about you. It knows you better than anyone else. Using that bank data can be a secure and knowledgeable way to operate online. The goal of DirectID is to break down barriers in finance, remove friction and offer speed and convenience for consumers. Whether this is by offering customised services in seconds, verifying your identity online, or seeing multiple bank accounts with one login, there is so much across banking and finance that innovation can improve.

We now help dozens of businesses like lenders onboard their customers by removing friction caused in the application process by current challenges of risk, compliance, fraud and regulation.
