JETCO provides access to over 200 APIs from 13 banks
Hong Kong-based JETCO is a cross-bank ATM service that has today announced the launch of its APIX exchange platform.
APIX provides access to over 200 APIs from 13 banks. Supported banking services include deposit, Forex, loans, investment, insurance, safe deposit box, branch, ATM, and more.
Angus Choi, CEO of JETCO, said:
“Open banking is a global trend that will help drive innovations and enhance the competitiveness of the local financial industry.
JETCO APIX enables banks to connect with third-party service providers and exchange product and service information easily via API integrations, which will significantly reduce the time required for them to build up business relationships. This will greatly facilitate the growth of Hong Kong’s API economy.
Going forward, we will focus on expanding our cooperation with third-party service providers, helping them to connect to the bank’s platforms so that consumers can enjoy more one-stop service and better customer experience.”
The open exchange is built with IBM’s API connect and therefore features API management capabilities, secured APIs, and a developer self-service portal.
Banks providing APIs for the platform include The Bank of East Asia, Bank of Communications (Hong Kong), Citibank, China Construction Bank, Chong Hing Bank, China CITIC Bank International, CMB Wing Lung Bank, Dah Sing Bank, Fubon Bank (Hong Kong), ICBC (Asia), OCBC Wing Hang Bank, Public Bank (Hong Kong), and Shanghai Commercial Bank.
