Welcome to the Fidor Banking API! Our API allows you to easily access your Fidor bank account, get information about your transaction history and submit various types of payments. In addition you may provide services for Fidor customers and access their accounts if certain conditions are met.
From the East, the first SouthEast Asian bank that opened up their API is OCBC bank in Singapore. Connect2OBC https://api.ocbc.com/store/
The bank’s developer portal, Connect2OCBC, provides free access to four open-source APIs. The APIs include Branch Locator, Credit Card Advisor, ATM Locator, and Forex. See more on the programmable web.
I know of Figo in Germany and Austria, who offers banking APIs to build a modern bank. Their banking API enables developers, startups and even banks to connect to every financial service provider. These partners can access every bank account (current, savings, loan, securities, …), credit card, eWallet and other financial services through one single REST-API. It is possible to extract account information and initiate bank transfers & direct debits.
Will check on them, to see which banks have partnered with FIGO.
Interesting to see that we believe that some banks have open API . They don’t - they do something much smarter. They rely on Open Bank Initiative to connect their legacy and old system to dynamic and agile solutions.
For more information i believe that you can directly contact Ismail Chaib, COO

They are developing a fantastic solution. You can also have a look at OPENF2 solution which is supported by several data vendors.
@andrefassler I have put all the suggestions I can find into the wiki I created above. @Konstantin as you started the thread, can you take my Wiki and put into your original post and make the post into a Wiki? I upgraded you to Level 3 so you have the user privilege to turn a post into a wiki. The reason I ask is that newcomers won’t know to scroll down to my wiki post, but will see your original post and try to edit as a wiki (which they won’t be able to do) or comment (which is suboptimal as somebody still needs to copy/paste into wiki. Ping me (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you need help.
This is going to be very useful! Personally I would be mostly interested in Banking API’s focusing on developing markets (mostly frontier markets and some emerging), as that’s where I’m active. I’ll have a look at what I can find for that space. For now I know of Yodlee which isn’t mentioned here so far. They offer a whole range of banking APIs and application modules (FinApps they call them) and analytics tools to go with them.
Topicus Finance is a Dutch company offering a bank-in-a-box software solution to banks and alternative lenders in the Netherlands. Their software is used by pretty much every major bank in the Netherlands in one way or another. They also just launched a real estate mortgage crowdfunding platform (Dutch), for which they got a license from the Dutch AFM (financial market authority).
The actual bank-in-a-box is marketed as Fyndoo, a modular SaaS solution with an open API. It for example connects to an SME’s accounting software so it can source data directly for SME credit scoring and monitoring purposes.
