Questions For Morten Schwaner

What can we expect form open banking in the future?

Open banking will provide a range of possibilities to provide new services to customers within the payments area. In addition, it will open up for new players entering the payment space. How customers will embrace all these possibilities remains to be seen, but those providing the best customer experience will prevail.

How is customer behaviour changing as a result of more interactions with the technology?

Customers focus on simplicity, flexibility and security, and that must be our focus in the payments area, as we develop new solutions and services for customers based on new technology.

With new regulations coming how are we standing with PSD2?

We have spent the last two to three years discussing and interpreting PSD2. Now is the time to implement. The big question is; how do we create an experience that does not add more friction in the payment process? And will we be ready in time?

Morten Schwaner has more than 10 years experience in the card payments area as a specialist and project manager. Now he is leading Danske Bank’s development within cards and mobile payments.


Head of Mobile Banking

Questions For Thomas Winandy

With new regulations coming how are we standing with PSD2?

The goals of the second payment service directive are diverse. On the one side competition between banks and fintechs should be encouraged, on the other side security of electronic payments should be increased to avoid fraud. Open banking forced banks to think about API concepts to share data with third-parties. The dialogue between banks and banking service providers is ongoing ever since. Customers can expect meaningful services, like aggregating all bank accounts and use more personalized services based on the full bandwith of banking services. Referring to the 2nd goal of PSD2 to increase security customers will often experience a limited user experience. By introducing a second factor banks need to offer creative solutions in order to support banking and e-commerce shopping.
