As part of our exclusive data partnership with the International Betting Integrity Association (IBIA), H2 is extending its Global Betting Summary Dataset market data coverage to now include the number of suspicious betting alerts reported by IBIA, which is the leading global authority in its field.

The new dataset tracks back historically to 2017 when 266 alerts were logged, to the 183 reported last year. Breakdown coverage is updated quarterly and provided by continent, country and sport. Tennis and football are currently the most targeted sports by match-fixers making up around 80% of all IBIA cases, albeit there have been alerts reported on 15 sports in total during 2017-19.

The IBIA Monitoring & Alert Platform gathers detailed intelligence on suspicious betting patterns identified across IBIA members’ sports betting markets globally. The association’s members include many of the largest operators in the world, with around 50 retail and online sports betting brands feeding data into the association’s unique customer-based alert platform 24/7.

All suspicious activity is reported to sport governing bodies and regulators by IBIA and by the member(s) whose market is concerned. The alert system has resulted in numerous convictions across a range of sports and enhanced the integrity of sporting events worldwide, whilst protecting IBIA members’ businesses and saving substantial amounts of otherwise fraudulently lost income.

IBIA CEO Khalid Ali said “The association is delighted to extend its ongoing collaboration with H2 and to be able to add its suspicious betting alert data to H2’s leading market analysis and intelligence. As membership of the association continues to grow, so does its global market coverage, with IBIA data representing the most accurate picture of the impact of corruption on regulated betting markets. I hope that all H2 subscribers engaged in sports and/or the betting arena will find this data of interest.”

David Henwood, Director at H2, added: “We are committed to providing the best independent data and market commentary there is within the sector. We also want to highlight best practice where we see it particularly when it comes to developing a safe betting environment in both sport and gambling regulation. IBIA is world leading its work and a quality data provider in its own right so showcasing these numbers to our H2 Subscribers is a natural extension of our partnership going forward.”

From 3 days to 3 clicks: TrueLayer launches Verification API to deliver an effortless onboarding experience

From 3 days to 3 clicks: TrueLayer launches Verification API to deliver an effortless onboarding experience
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

  • Built on top of open banking, the new API delivers a significantly better onboarding experience, with 90%+ of good actors successfully verified in 3 clicks.

TrueLayer, Europe’s leading open banking platform, announced the launch of a new approach to account ownership checks with its Verification API.

Combining open banking with machine learning, the Verification API makes onboarding effortless with success rates that are over 20% higher than credit bureaus and returning a result in seconds, rather than days, compared to manual bank statement checks. By pre-verifying customer’s details, it also simplifies payments setup meaning no more failed transactions.

Multiple TrueLayer clients are using the Verification API, including Authologic, a Y Combinator-backed provider of identity verification solutions.

“Whether you are a fintech, a marketplace, or an ecommerce platform you want to deliver the best possible onboarding experience. We are aggregating different identity verification methods and we are big supporters of using open banking thanks to its ability to make the entire process more intuitive. Working with a market leader like TrueLayer to integrate its Verification API will help us to further strengthen the identity verification process for our customers,” commented Jarek Sygitowicz, co-founder of Authologic.

Traditional verification methods such as bank statement uploads are slow, error prone and create a poor user experience. While open banking offers another approach, existing providers provide access to raw data that requires businesses to then build and maintain their own logic to check that the customer’s name matches their name on file at the bank.

TrueLayer’s Verification API removes these issues. Rather than the time consuming and resource intensive task of building a matching engine, TrueLayer has developed a verification logic that sits on top of open banking rails. It matches the name supplied during the onboarding process with the name on file at the bank, providing a single feed that ensures an immediate and highly accurate response on whether their user’s account has been verified or not.

As a result, the Verification API delivers significant benefits, including:

  • An accelerated onboarding process from 3 days to just 3 clicks.

  • Coverage spanning all major banks, resulting in a 22.5% higher success rate compared to credit bureau checks.

  • Lower fraud risk through embedded Strong Customer Authentication within the bank verification flow.

  • An improved user experience, with a simple redirect to their banking app to confirm account ownership with a fingerprint or Face ID.

  • Reduced payment failures by using pre-verified account details.

  • Reduced burden on compliance teams by automating checks through a single API call.

  • Reduced burden on engineers who can focus on solving core business problems, rather than building and maintaining name-check logic.

“Verification is the first step to onboarding a new user and yet it can often take days to verify an account owner using traditional methods. Their security is questionable, they’re prone to errors and they take forever,” commented Ossama Soliman, Chief Product Officer at TrueLayer. “It doesn’t need to be that way. With the Verification API we’ve built on top of open banking to create a faster, more secure and more accurate approach to verifying a user’s account. It serves businesses across multiple industries, including financial services, PSPs, wealth management and trading, marketplaces, property and iGaming.”

The solution extended its presence by moving to markets such as South Korea, India and Japan in late 2020 and, more recently, Brazil and Nigeria earlier this year.

Andrey Akimov, Chief Operating Officer N1 Partners Group, comments on the win: “We cannot describe our joy after winning in the Player’s Choice category and being voted as the best online casino by our players in this year’s AskGamblers Awards.
