DESCRIPTION OF THE GROUP’S BUSINESS Description of the Group’s four Business Lines services

Open Banking The Group supports financial institutions and fintech companies to capture the open banking disruption and turn it to their advantage. The Group’s API-based services cover all aspects of open banking such as access to information systems, security, Open Innovation, Open Data and Banking-as-a-Service. Access to Account Bank Services. The Group supports ● Account Servicing Payment Service Providers (ASPSPs, typically banks) to open up their infrastructure to authorized Third-Party Service Providers (TPPs), so that these TPPs can initiate payments and access account information. Besides managing the Payment Service User (PSU) consent and ensuring the access to the desired service, the ASPSP is also expected, in particular but not only, to manage the TPP community and follow up updates on regulatory requirements and API standards. To address the regulatory challenges and exploit the associated opportunities, the Group’s Digital Bankin g Platform integrates a PSD2/Open Banking compliance module, namely Access to Account Bank Services, enabling financial institutions to effortlessly meet the regulatory requirements and develop their Open Banking strategy while managing the risks and mitigating uncertainty. Access to Account TPP Services. Next to the Group’s ● offer for ASPSPs, the Group supports third party providers with Access to Account TPP Services. The Group provides via a single API an infrastructure that gives third-party providers the possibility to initiate a payment or retrieve account information on a pan-European scale. In addition, the Group has created several use cases that allow TPPs to quickly and effectively create a value proposition to offer to their customers ( e.g. green banking, request-to-pay, immediate accounting). Mobile Wallets The Group offers digital wallet platform services. A digital wallet is an application that simplifies the payment process, particularly on mobile devices, by storing payment instrument credentials like debit card, bank account and other data (loyalty, coupons, etc.) and by removing the need to insert a payment card at a merchant location or enter card information on the internet or mobile. This also makes the payment process more secure for consumers and merchants.
