Nivelo enables open banking
The financial world is opening and more companies than ever are offering digital payment solutions. Yet the playing field isn’t level when it comes to risk information access, which leads to fraud and abuse plaguing the payment infrastructure. Nivelo believes in equalizing this asymmetry. They see a world where risk and fraud information isn’t siloed, where facilitating the sharing of data doesn’t mean sacrificing privacy and where data access is democratized.
