TrueLayer stated that its Payments API delivers instant, secure deposits, the majority of its customers are funding and building their investment portfolio, allowing Wombat to strengthen its market position. Wombat aims to empower generations to, save, manage and grow their money by making investing easy.

It also encourages positive investment habits through ‘set-and-forget’ features such as monthly automated saving and round-ups.

“Retail investing is booming, and as more customers look for services that help them save and invest, their expectations are changing. Innovative firms such as Wombat are embracing the benefits of open banking payments to differentiate and drive customer loyalty,” added Jamie Morton, UK Country Manager at TrueLayer. “Its customers have embraced it, with the majority now making their one-off payments through the open banking option after just one week.
