About Us & Our Partners

Our core team were consultants to UK’s OBIE from its start in 2017 to June 2020 when we successfully handed over to permanent staff.  Our role was to support the delivery of OB to all participants.

We are proud to be partnered with other key capabilities, also predominantly from the UK’s OBIE.  Below are details of:

  • Our People – our core team and representatives in UK, Latin America and Africa
  • Our Partners – world-leading expertise and innovation in ecosystem components

Our original role was to support the delivery of OB to all participants in the ‘Central Testing’ team, providing:
▪ Participant support
▪ Advice for Fintechs (TPPs) and Banks (ASPSPs)
▪ Ecosystem coordination
▪ Coordinating standards implementations
▪ Collaboration with all OB teams
▪ Monitoring and predicting ecosystem growth

From this initial start we have since grown, and are now active in;
Brasil – supporting Open Banking ecosystem coordination and development
Mexico – Standards design and development
UK – We continue to be active there, supporting a large community of participants
▪ Also in Chile, Peru, South Africa and Saudi Arabia

Based on extensive UK and international experience over many years, we can bring unparalleled ‘lessons learned’ and ‘future possibilities’ to Open initiatives Worldwide.

We support and enable ALL partners to achieve success.

Our People

We firmly believe in a framework of International Expertise supporting Local Knowledge to offer the best of both worlds.  Every member of our team either has deep experience of delivering Open Banking ecosystems and/or extensive local experience gained over many years.

Our Partners

Whilst our methodology is broadly solution-agnostic, we are proud to collaborate closely with the following renowned operators. All have deep expertise in Open Banking, in the UK and elsewhere in the World.

We believe that a complete Open ecosystem (Banking, Finance etc) consists of three essential elements

Identity and Access Management components, for secure and confident transactions between participants

Integration components for ease of TPP and ASPSP engagement in the ecosystem

Security, for underlying confidence, identification and resolution of issues and challenges to the ecosystem

Identity

Raidiam’s Trust Framework (aka ‘Directory) enables all participants to be reliably identified to each other and securely communicate with confidence.  They developed the UK OBIE’s solution, and have just delivered the first successful Production framework outside the UK, in Brazil.  They are World Leaders.

Integration

OBConnect have a unique offering, via their ‘Peer to Peer’ model in which the integration components are represented at the participant level. They do not mediate centrally, as do other integrators, using the APIs as defined in the Country’s standards. They are the only integrator able to provide both ASPSP and TPP accelerator modules, typically reducing integration times by 70%.

Security

Obcessr have deep experience of Security in an Open Banking environment, with key founders of the Company working in the UK’s OBIE. They offer security monitoring and alerting (including a unique dark web capability), cyber security assessments, digital forensics and a scalable Security Operations Centre (SOC).

Skills Development

The Brazilian Institute of Digital Finance (IFD) is a not-for-profit organisation with the aim of designing, developing, managing and executing digital finance research projects. To this end, the IFD manages public policies applied to digital finance – such as LIFT Learning -, conducts research, studies and projects applied to innovation and financial technology, provides consultancy and technical opinions on digital business, and produces courses and events on innovation and financial technology.

Software Development

Khmara Solutions is a technology consulting and software development company that combine excellent value for money with deep technical skills.

They specialise in the design, development, operation and support of cloud-based high load Internet services and web applications.

Through work on behalf of some of the key players in the Open Banking industry, they have deep experience of both UK and Brasilian ecosystems.  They are in a good position to support you!

Based in Kyiv, Ukraine, their business lead in Ukraine is English, based in both Kyiv and UK.  All communications are in English.

Technology Leadership

Webovate develop software and API solutions for some of the largest Fintechs in the UK. They specialise in helping start-ups and fast prototyping utilising AWS Amazon Web Services within the Financial Sector and other markets.

Webovate specialise in innovation – they led the team that designed and developed the World’s first Open Banking functional conformance suite, for the UK’s OBIE.  Their vision, and that of their CEO Glyn Jackson, is parallel to that of OB Delivery.  We see Open Banking as a predominantly social exercise, working to liberate millions of customers, enhancing choice of financial services and bringing in those previously excluded.

Our passion for innovation is dedicated to these goals.

Security (Brazil)

RustCon is certified as a Strategic Defense Company by the Brazilian Ministry of Defense. Since then, we have developed high-complexity technology products such as simulators, critical systems, and command and control platforms.

Our goal is to be a Brazilian world-class management company, able to promote the development of modern tools and solutions for the defense of national interests, including critical infrastructure
