PSD2 in business event

Last Monday, January 15, Holland FinTech and the Dutch Payments Association organised the PSD2 in business event. The event was available for Holland FinTech members and took place at the Dutch Payments Association’s office in Amsterdam. The room was filled with attendants, together representing a large part of the financial ecosystem. The event was strategically organized, as it followed the implementation deadline of PSD2 in the EU on Saturday the 13th, and hosted speakers representing different perspectives.

Event Summary

To introduce the event and get the attendants in the right mindset, Maurits de Nerée kicked off the talks for Holland FinTech with a welcome speech. Vincent Jansen from Innopay was next up to take the stage together with Gijs Boudewijn from the Dutch Payments Association, in which Vincent interviewed Gijs in a ‘fireside chat’, discussing the role of the Dutch Payments Association in the implementation of PSD2.
By giving insights in the Dutch central bank’s important role in the facilitation of the implementation of PSD2, Tijmen Daniels represented De Nederlandsche Bank (DNB). As the DNB is responsible for licensing of AISPs and PISPs, the room was following the speaker’s words closely and followed up the speech with some practical questions.
Aoife Houlihan and Robert Bueninck from Klarna were next up to be interviewed by Vincent Jansen. They talked about how PSD2 impacts their business as a global tech bank, mainly discussing the way it might influence consumer behaviour following the regulations.
Following Klarna’s speakers was Helena Verhagen of Privacy Valley, who gave an expert presentation concerning the privacy issues regarding PSD2. Naturally, this is an important subject following from PSD2, which was visible by the way she held the crowd’s attention with the topic that was of interest to everyone in the audience.
Representing the Authority for Consumers & Markets, Frank Vergouwen discussed how the Dutch market is regulated to create a level playing field after the introduction of third-party players (TPPs) to the financial landscape.
Concludingly, a Q&A session was held, allowing the audience to pose their question with the speakers’ knowledge at their disposal. After some final words of Maurits de Nerée, the successful event was ended with some drinks, bites and networking.
