The coming payment service directive from the European Commission marks a shift in banking regulations. As the PSD2 (Revised Payment Service Directive) becomes implemented across the EU and the European Economic Area, banks’ monopoly on their customer’s transaction data and payment services is about to disappear. PSD2 enables bank customers, both consumers and businesses, to use third-party providers to manage their finances.

Ronald de Bont

In my role as senior manager/consultant for Compliance and Audit I am specialized in IT and Operations in international financial services environments. I am focused on innovation and technology, specifically PSD2 Open Banking, Blockchain and Cloud Computing. I have an in-depth knowledge of payments and clearing processing including compliance related aspects like AML/STF transactions monitoring/filtering. Other specialist areas are operational risks related to information security and business continuity.

I have a special interest for new developments, be it cyber security, cloud computing, block chain initiatives, outsourcing or behavioral auditing. Furthermore I am interested in building and developing compliance or audit functions including setting up an infrastructure based on my lengthy experience.

In my advisory role I believe in partnership and the importance of adding sustainable value to the organisation. Providing clear and tangible advice that can be implemented effectively. Recommendations should match the needs of organisations as a whole and have the ability to be implemented.

In my leadership role I believe it’s of utmost importance to empower staff and stimulate their growth potential. I am easy accessible for my team members, fair, reliable and quality driven, hard-working and hands-on. Partnership and teamwork is key for me, in my view a team can perform better than separate individuals. I have experience in managing departments up to 40 employees.
