Trustly’s Tjärnberg to focus on shift towards open banking in SBC keynote


Group CEO Johan Tjärnberg, of leading digital account-to-account payments platform, Trustly, will explain how open banking is revolutionising the payments industry by providing a smoother user experience when he delivers a keynote during SBC Summit Barcelona.

The keynote takes place on September 22nd, the second day of the conference and trade show at Fira de Barcelona Montjuïc. Tjärnberg will detail his journey in payments and discuss how open banking helps address consumer and merchant needs as the world is witnessing a shift in the way we move and manage our money. 

“The modern world favours those who are fast to adapt to changes,” Tjärnberg says. “Open banking is a huge part of our mission to make digital payments seamless for everyone. It is great to see a separate stage dedicated to payments at SBC Summit Barcelona, and I am looking forward to sharing my thoughts with the sports betting and iGaming audience.”

Over 525 million consumers worldwide use Trustly, a payment platform that prioritises speed, simplicity and security. The platform supports real-time deposits and fast withdrawals and helps merchants instantly verify consumer data, making it a popular choice in the sports betting and iGaming industry.

Johan Tjärnberg assumed his new role as the Trustly CEO in January 2022. In 2014, he founded Bambora, an international payments processor for in-store and online retailers, prior to which he was CEO of Point, a leading European payment services provider.

Rasmus Sojmark, CEO and Founder of SBC, says: “Open banking is revolutionising the way people interact with their finances. Trustly’s open banking solution is already in use at major operators as we are noticing a shift from traditional payment solutions to account-to-account payments. I am very excited that Johan joins us in Barcelona this year to share his experience creating a seamless payment journey.”

Trustly will have significant involvement on the second day of the conference. In addition to Tjärnberg’s keynote, the company’s VP of Gaming, Vasilije Lekovic, is participating in the Payment Leaders – the three C’s: Customer friction vs Conversion vs Cost session. And Trustly’s Senior VP of Sales & Distribution, Olof Wirfelt, is set to be part of the What is the next evolution of the cashless experience? panel.
