Open Banking

What is Open Banking?

Open Banking is an initiative designed to improve and enhance everyone’s banking experience. The core idea of Open Banking is that you can provide banks with secure access to your accounts so that you can manage your finances all in one place.

How does Open Banking work?

When you sign up for Open Banking, you can choose to provide banks and other third parties with secure access to your accounts. The information held in your accounts is then shared securely between organisations using Application Programming Interfaces, or APIs. 

You can find out more about Open Banking from our Open Banking FAQs, or by visiting the Open Banking website.

Add accounts from other banks

With account aggregation you’ll be able to add accounts from other banks directly to your NatWest app. This will allow you to see your balance and transactions from your other accounts quickly and easily, saving you the hassle of logging into multiple accounts.
