An Account Aggregator empowers you with control over your financial data which otherwise remains only with financial institutions. It also enables financial institutions to safely share and receive individuals’ data reducing the risk of fraud
CRIF Connect is an Account Aggregator licensed by RBI that empowers to assist you in simple and safe exchange of your data between financial institutions like banks, insurance agencies, mutual fund companies or any regulatory bodies by providing its user an end-to-end encrypted data sharing platform that securely retrieves and delivers financial data from one financial entity to another, without ever reading, storing or using it. CRIF CONNECT thus acts like a bridge, to deliver your data only based on your consent.

CRIF Connect securely connects to your accounts with various financial institutions where you have a relationship, namely banks or mutual funds.
