Anorak and TrueLayer combine for insurance under PSD2

Application programming interface (API) provider TrueLayer has partnered with independent insurance adviser Anorak to enable the first application of PSD2 into the life insurance market.

Traditionally, an insurance provider would sell products and consumers would usually choose the cheapest. However, by using Open Banking to gain access to an individual’s data and predict the level of life insurance cover they will need, Anorak is opening up a new market.

TrueLayer provides an interface between financial institutions and third-party applications over an API. This enables companies to capitalise on Open Banking and PSD2 rules by providing secure access to banking infrastructure.

Francesco Simoneschi, chief executive and co-founder of TrueLayer, said that by leveraging their financial data, consumers are empowered to make an informed choice on the life insurance policy that is best for them – saving both time and money.
