Open Banking Strategy Formation

Open Banking is an emerging and high-profile area in financial services. There is a ‘market forces’ definition of Open Banking. It refers to the use of Open APIs that enable third-party Developers to build applications and services around banks. There is also a ‘regulatory’ definition of Open Banking, focused on greater transparency and choices for bank account holders which is being enforced by regulators. Some commentators suggest that Open Banking could cure many ills in modern banking.
