PSD2 — Opportunities and challenges for existing players and new market entrantsThe introduction of the EU’s revised Payments Services Directive (PSD2) will create a range of challenges for payment service providers who will have to comply with new requirements for stronger authentication and data sharing while also adapting to competition from new entrants, says Helene Oger-Zaher, retail banking conduct supervision expert at the European Banking Authority (EBA).
