Akahu is New Zealand’s open finance platform.
We build and maintain data integrations with banks and other financial institutions. We bundle those integrations into a simple API for developers.
Akahu’s purpose is to empower Kiwi consumers to gracefully control and leverage their data. We work with reputable third party developers who deliver that purpose through their products.
Akahu puts you in control of your data. We make it simple to access the data that organisations hold about you, and to share that data with trusted third parties.
Connect your data to organisations that are delivering amazing new customer experiences.
Ongoing visibility and control of how your data is shared. See requests to your data in real time.
Akahu APIs enable your customers to seamlessly connect their data to your app. Your customers can consent to sharing their identity, balance, and transaction data. They can also consent to initiating payments directly from your app. No one else provides this functionality in New Zealand.
Integrations with New Zealand banks and other financial institutions.
Best-in-class infrastructure, security, and data privacy. Live integrations used in-market since 2017.
Simple APIs, with developer-friendly documentation and support.
Akahu's range of APIs are split into those that require one-off consumer consent, and those that require ongoing consumer consent. Our team is here to help you navigate the options and make decisions about the right consumer data to power your use cases.
