Open Banking and AceMoney
AceMoney doesn't allow you to sync with your bank accounts. Instead, it requires you to download information in a standard format and then import the data.
AceMoney is not set up for the Open Banking scheme, which allows you to share current account data via a secure application programming interface (API) without handing over your login details. Firms using Open Banking are regulated, and security protocols protect your data.
