Welcome to Afinis
The goal of advancing efficiency and security, and supporting innovation in financial services depends on interoperability standards. Today, achieving objectives such as improved transaction safety and transparency, increased communications speed and efficiency, and broadening support of payments innovations calls for consensus-led governance, intelligent innovation, and international collaboration.
Afinis Interoperability Standards is a membership-based standards organization that brings together diverse collaborators – through innovative and agile processes – to develop implementable, interoperable and portable API standards and other financial services standards across operating environments and platforms.
Afinis furthers the work of Nacha’s Payments Innovation Alliance Application Programming Interface (API) Standardization Industry Group (ASIG) to now advance API standardization efforts across the financial services ecosystem through formal governance, and includes the work of the Interactive Financial eXchange Forum (IFX). Afinis provides a community for thought leadership on the shared goals of expanding efficiency, surety, safety and interoperability within the financial services industry.
