Nos publications Open Banking Information for TPP

In the context of the revised Payment Services Directive (PSD2) LGT Bank Ltd. refers to the framework of Berlin-Group and provides the following services:

  • Account Information "AIS", provided by an Account Information Service Provider (AISP).
  • Payment Initiation "PIS", provided by a Payment Initiation Service Provider (PISP).

Currently, our implementation supports the Berlin Group Standard according to specification version 1.3. On 16.05.2021, we will switch to version 1.3.6. Both versions are available on the PSD2 test environment.

LGT Bank Ltd. ("the bank") may deny an account information service provider or payment initiation service provider access to a payment account for objectively justified and duly evidenced reasons relating to unauthorised or fraudulent access to the payment account by that account information service provider or payment initiation service provider. In such cases, the bank client will be informed, in a suitable manner (in writing, verbally or using electronic communication channels), that access to the payment account is denied and will be provided with information on the reasons behind this decision. That information will, where possible, be given to the bank client before access is denied and at the latest immediately thereafter, unless providing such information would compromise objectively justified security reasons or is prohibited by other relevant law.

Please note that LGT only accepts certificates issued by a certification authority approved in the EU or the EEA. The certificates themselves must meet the following criteria:

  • the certificates are valid and not expired
  • the download will take place via an https-URL
  • the certificate chain is valid
  • the status is "granted"

In case of a technical unavailability of the interfaces, as an immediate available alternative option LGT can provide, the accounts can be accessed via However, in case of general problems, e.g. external network problems, LGT cannot guarantee the screen-scraping access via this alternative interface. If the login credentials are correct, a PhotoTan is displayed and needs to be forwarded by the payment service provider to the client so that the client can confirm the login according to the strong customer authentication obligations. Please note that a payment service provider is required to inform LGT by e-mail if an access took place via screen scraping.
