figo at Paris FinTech Forum

Paris FinTech Forum (@ParisFinForum) takes place on January 28th in the French Ministry of Economy and Finance’s Pierre Mendès France Conference center. CEO André M. Bajorat participates in France’s largest FinTech Event.

The hosts ambition was to organize the largest FinTech event in France in 2016. There will be almost 100 speakers on stage, including 79 fintechs from 12 countries, and in total 600 attendees in the conference center. Within the context of Paris FinTech Forum André discusses with three other CEOs the subject ‘Services to finance, the winning sector for FinTechs?’. Panel members beside André are Michael Priem, CEO of AMfine, Gilles Nectoux, Président-directeur général of Pleicom, and Stuart Lacey, Founder & CEO of Trunomi.

The panel is about that many FinTechs are acting neither in the B2C market, nor in the classical corporate one. Their customers are banks, insurances or other fintech startups. They sell the tools and platfor­ms to enable better services to end users of these financial actors. They are much less visible in the newspapers or on Twitter, their offers are much more complex to describe in newspapers so they do not make headlines, but they do have a clear advantage: their customers do have needs.

figo knows about these contents. The company aggregates financial sources from over 3,100 banks and financial institutions to enable innovative services. As Europe’s first Banking ServiceProvider figo is PSD2 ready! Its ‘Banking as a Service’ platform connects modern services with more than 50 million online banking accounts in Germany and the company is targeting the Single Euro Payments Area (SEPA) in total.

Furthermore figo …

… created a dynamic FinTech ecosystem
… has set up a new connectivity standard to financial data
… reduces complexity of banking implementation to a minimum
… makes banking usable wherever it adds value
… creates new touch points between consumers and our partners – startups and banks!

figo realized the opportunities arising from PSD2 accompanied by changing customer expectations. figo does not only provide an established banking API, but also an entire banking service platform supporting a vast number of innovative banking solutions (incl.
