Open Banking is the financial industry’s latest revolution
Relationships between banks, customers and their partners are about to be redefined.
What is Open Banking?

Open Banking is a series of regulations that reforms the way that banks deal with their customers’ financial information. In Europe, it is also known as the ‘second payment services directive’ (PSD2). With Open Banking, all UK-regulated banks now have to share the data they have on their consumers with third party authorised providers – budgeting apps for example – as well as other banks.

It has been estimated that these regulations could boost the UK’s economy by £1bn annually and that 84% of financial services companies are already investing in Open Banking products.
The Open Banking Effect

Implementing Open Banking within an institution democratises the capacity for personalisation whilst keeping a cost balance.
In Asia, financial institutions have already started leveraging Open Banking to position themselves as technology companies and lifestyle partners for their consumers.
Banks have the potential to expand into becoming marketplaces, offering a suite of products from other organisations and TPPs.
Open Banking opens up the possibility for FinTechs, challenger banks and competitors from other industries to relegate banks to being ‘invisible’.
