Agenda

Open Banking continues to accelerate, reshaping the European financial services ecosystem and paving the way for PSD3. So, Open Banking Expo Europe returns to bring together those leading the Open Banking and Open Finance revolution 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. We will also explore how the needs of consumers and businesses are continually evolving as they interact with their money across more platforms than ever before.

OPENING KEYNOTE – The future of the European financial services ecosystem: Unity, interconnectivity, innovation

The theme is set against the current geopolitical and regulatory backdrop: the war in Ukraine brought the EU closer together; PSD3 and Open Finance are firmly on the horizon. So, what does it look and mean for the European financial services ecosystem?

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. Creating more open environments while ensuring consumer protections and data security are in place; what European regulators and the industry should do next to ensure continued innovation; understand business priorities, technical expertise, cultural ethos, consumer appetite, and system challenges; consider all the delays with PSD2 implementation and share what lessons have been learnt to make PSD3 implementation different; and why European banks should join forces and ‘unity’ could be a keyword on this new leg of the journey.

PANEL DEBATE – BNPL: Need for robust regulation, the future existence of the current form of the popular BNPL model

In 2021, both the FCA and European Commission submitted proposals for the regulation of this popular payment model. Legislation would not only advocate consumer protection, but also fair competition. Regulation would also allow mainstream credit providers, which have been finding replicating BNPL products difficult, to compete more closely with fintechs.
