Looking to swiftly move your bank towards European banking standards? Wultra is here to help.
We’re living in exciting times, as a number of countries are currently on the road to becoming eventual members of the European Union. The EU’s enlargement will undoubtedly have profound effects on all of its members which will be felt through various cultural, political, and financial shifts.
Another important aspect of the EU’s enlargement is the process of incoming member states meeting the requirements of EU regulations. While there are numerous legislations that countries preparing to enter the EU must be aware of, we’ll focus on a single regulation in this post: The Revised Payment Services Directive, otherwise known as PSD2.
So here’s the big question:
