Our vision has made it possible to develop technology that has put personal finance on autopilot for more than 300.000 users in Denmark. After using this technology for some years, we realized that others might benefit from using it as well. And that was how Nordic API Gateway was born.

Set to make innovation easier for everyone, Nordic API Gateway is a B2B solution that’s at the forefront of the world of open banking. With Nordic API Gateway, our clients can build intelligent financial services such as PFM apps, fraud detection, auditory assistance and estimations of credit scores. The possibilities are endless and the market is ready for it.

Our Gateway Team has made the complex technology of Nordic API Gateway very user-friendly and understandable for our clients. The team owns the Gateway itself, ranging from the public facing parts of Nordic API Gateway such as our APIs, client portal and documentation to the heart of the system. The team plays a key role within Nordic API Gateway providing the absolute best API experience and build a world-class API ecosystem.
