Another four start-ups join FDATA


The Financial Data and Technology Association has announced another four new start-ups have joined its growing membership ahead of the formal commencement of the Implementation Entity’s work on delivering an API.

The companies – Castlight Financial, PayLink, RentData and Truelayer – provide innovative financial applications and services to empower customers to make better decisions

FDATA’s members are united by a desire to see a quality API implemented in as fast a timescale as possible, encompassing as much financial data as possible, and the Association is committed to helping the Implementation Entity achieve this.

Andy Maciver, FDATA’s Executive Director, said:

“FDATA’s membership has now doubled since the summer. We believe we are the premier Association to represent the needs of the fintech sector as we navigate what could be a game-changer for the way the consumers of the UK manage their data and their money.

“We must get it right, and FDATA is there to ensure that we do.

“Our four new members – all innovative start-ups pushing forward exciting business plans – will help ensure that as an Association we represent all views and, crucially, interrogate all proposals to ensure that they are in the best interests of the consumer.”
