Open Banking continues to accelerate, reshaping the European financial services ecosystem and paving the way for PSD3.

Open Banking Expo Europe returns to shine a light on the innovators, regulators and policy makers from across the European ecosystem.

The event will once again provide a platform to review the latest progress, share the most exciting developments, analyse current regional trends, and discuss predictions for 2023 and beyond.

We will consider what an interoperable Open Finance framework might look like now that a common API standard is potentially in sight, and how innovation is forging a new path for payments experiences like no other.

Join us in Amsterdam on 30 September. Complimentary tickets are available to qualifying individuals.

POWERHOUSE PANEL DEBATE – The open journey to PSD3: A new Open Finance framework

As Open Banking continues to accelerate, instant payments and PSD2 have been paving the way for PSD3. It’s hoped that PSD3 will create more open environments whilst ensuring consumer protections and data security are in place. Panellists will provide expert opinion and insight on what European regulators and the wider industry should do next to ensure continued innovation across Europe, barriers to entry when it comes to a potential PSD3 rollout and discuss the opportunities and threats this could present your business. Panel members will also explore key lessons learnt to make a PSD3 implementation a reality and why European banks should join forces and  ‘unite’ on this new leg of the journey.

FOCUS ON OPEN BANKING PAYMENTS – Keeping ahead of the curve: Can anyone top the Uber payments journey?

Are Open Banking payments the future of payments? VRPs, sweeping, what’s next? How will Open Banking payments help create new payment experiences? Embedding payments functionality in customer journeys; unlocking new payments means with payments initiation; facilitating ecommerce; supporting merchants and businesses; figuring out who to partner with and where customers are going (how their needs are changing); what innovations should we be looking out for in the next 12-18 months?

FOCUS ON SCA & FRAUD – Creating frictionless experiences

Removing friction while ensuring fraud prevention and offering consumer protections; is a bit of friction a good idea?

PSD2’s aim is to better protect consumers and increase fraud prevention in online payment, but its introduction of Strong Consumer Authentication (SCA) brings challenges. Nethone’s chief executive officer Hubert Rachwalski will advise delegates how to remove friction whilst ensuring fraud prevention and offering consumer protections.

GREEN FINTECH: Helping customers become conscious consumers

Is the fintech sector the last to jump on the ESG (Environmental Social Governance) wagon?

With billions of transactions processed globally how can consumers becomes more conscious consumers when it comes to adapting the way they move their money to help our planet thrive? Our panel dives into some of the key use cases when it comes to social values and goals that are live on the market today, whilst identifying the barriers to entry which are stopping this area of the market from being more inclusive for consumers and businesses.

With the pressure firmly on banks and financial services firms more broadly to help tackle the climate crisis we’re asking; how can we as industry really enforce the change in behaviour that’s needed to make progress and how far away are we from a truly embedded banking and payments experience that levels up our carbon footprint?
