PSD2 Insurance FAQs

PSD2 is a revised legislation following the review of the initial Payment Services Directive (PSD).

The legislation aims to improve the payments system for customers by making the sector safer and more transparent, whilst improving fraud and competition for merchants.

Under the PSD2 regulations, companies with AISP or PISP permissions must adhere to the minimum insurance requirements as stipulated within the PSD2 Directive. It is important that this insurance is maintained whilst the company holds these permissions.

If you are applying to the FCA to be granted permissions, you will need to evidence that you have sourced insurance that meets their requirements from an approved insurer.

The team are on hand to guide you through the process of calculating the minimum requirements set out by the European Banking Authority (EBA).

Lockton’s PSD2 limit calculator can be used to work out your minimum insurance requirements based on your company activities.
