TrueLayer launches its banking API in private beta after $1.3 million round

1 Share

Bank API platform TrueLayer has launched its private beta following a $1.3 million funding round from Connect Ventures and Graph Ventures.

TrueLayer is a platform that connects fintech developers with traditional banks' customer information – or “bridging the divide” as it puts it – to implement into their apps while staying within regulations. The API supports account verification, KYC processes, and transactional data for credit scoring and risk assessment.

The London-based startup said rules in the EU like PSD2 (Payment Services Directive 2) and GDPR and guidelines from the Competition and Markets Authority in the UK will present opportunities for fintech startups to further muscle their way into the financial services sector.

“Consumer choice is shifting from banks to banking. Our vision is to create cloud infrastructure that will allow banks to connect with applications and make their services available to innovative startups that are keen to re-invent the customer experience,” said TrueLayer CEO Francesco Simoneschi, who is also a partner at Mission Market. “Ultimately, it’s also vital that the traditional banks open up their systems and become more agile – or they risk getting left behind – so the platform we offer is win-win.”

TrueLayer closed this funding round last year and so far has launched in the UK with a wider European launch on the cards.

'Guardians Vol. 2' Test Screening Rates It Marvel's Best Ever

1 Comment and 2 Shares

The Marvel Cinematic Universe may have finally, truly peaked as Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 tested a perfect 100 during an early screening, the absolute highest of any film in the MCU thus far. Almost every film in the industry gets screened by test audiences, mostly randos who then rate the film between 1 and 100, and the studio might make edits based on that feedback. Marvel — which values secrecy above all else — tests from a comparatively narrow collection of friends and family members, but these results are still telling: 100% of the people who’ve seen the film have rated it a 100.

Dating markets in everything

1 Share

TrumpSingles.com is a matchmaking site where supporters of President-elect Donald Trump can connect and possibly find love.

During an appearance on “Fox & Friends,” the site’s founder said TrumpSingles helps supporters navigate a divisive year.

“Sometimes it’s tough to date when you’re a Trump supporter, so we’re making it easier to find each other, who are like-minded and have the same political views,” said David Goss, the 35-year-old Californian who launched the site in June.

TrumpSingles, which costs $19.95 per month, had 24,000 members as of Wednesday afternoon.
