Questions about banking APIs and banking as service? UMB has answers.

    Banking as a service, or BaaS, is when banking products like deposit accounts and credit cards are made available to non-bank third parties through Application Programming Interfaces (APIs). This technology enables companies like fintechs and broker/dealers to offer core-banking services without having to build all the products that would be needed.

    To learn more about fintechs using BaaS, read “Five key banking-as-a-service terms you should know.

    UMB partners with fintech companies to help them navigate the complexities of bank regulation and compliance. For more information, contact the UMB BaaS team.

    An open banking API (Application Programming Interface) is the technology that supports open banking, allowing financial institutions to securely share financial data with one another. As the digital banking industry continues to expand, fintech companies are one of the main users of opening banking APIs.

    When evaluating potential open banking or banking-as-a-service (BaaS) partners, it’s important for companies to understand the type of support they can expect, as well as a provider’s banking regulatory expertise.
