First dedicated safer gambling platform given direct access to open banking infrastructure

Department of Trust (DOTrust. co. uk), the award-winning provider of financial risk assessments for safer gambling, has received official status from the United Kingdom’s Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) as a Registered Account Information Service Provider (RAISP) under the terms of the Payment Services Regulations 2017.

The registration makes Department of Trust the dedicated safer gambling AIS provider. With its new status, Department of Trust can now connect directly to dozens of United Kingdom banks and payment institutions to provide gambling operators with its low-friction and privacy-friendly model of enhanced financial vulnerability, source of funds and proof of income assessments.

Additionally, it powers its consumer-facing BetBudget personal finance tool to independently assist consumers in keeping on top of their spend, controlling their data and tracking their overall gambling P&L.

This latest development, which has taken over a year to achieve, follows the provider’s recent launch of its DoTrust Complete platform with The Rank Group. The major brand is the first to use this bespoke, integrated suite of frictionless assessments that gives operators end-to-end risk evaluation of their players to spot and support potentially vulnerable customers from the moment of registration onwards.

“Becoming a RAISP is a major step forward not just for us, our customers and users, but also for the place of open banking in supporting safer gambling generally,” the founder and Chief Executive Officer for Department of Trust, Charles Cohen, said. “Financial risk assessments of gamblers are different to those in other sectors and demand a bespoke approach that is sensitive to the needs of consumers and operators alike. The industry needs providers able to deliver high-acceptance, low-friction and privacy-protecting financial assessments of players that are both accurate and proportionate throughout the player journey.

“Being registered as a RAISP is the gold standard of open banking and allows us to do that alongside our frictionless checks for lower-risk situations seamlessly and without being distracted from the task at hand. Having direct access to the banks means we can offer the highest level of service, innovate faster and ensure integrity throughout whilst providing the best value for money in the sector.

“In combination with our recently launched platform, DoTrust Complete, this development further reinforces our commitment to providing the tools required to ensure compliance in regulated markets around the world.”
