Cyril Chiche, co-founder and CEO of Lydia, said, “We are proud to partner with a global open banking leader like Tink, that can support us in our international growth. By teaming up with Tink, we aim to give Lydia’s users the best possible user experience and allow them to easily manage their financial daily lives within our app. We look forward to working with Tink to create an improved and seamless experience for our users.”

Daniel Kjellén, co-founder and CEO of Tink, added, “We are excited to team up with one of Europe’s leading payment fintechs and become their open banking technology provider. By working together, we will make our open banking technology available to Lydia’s 4 million users. We look forward to supporting Lydia in their expansion in France and across borders.”
