Open Banking Expo is bringing together leaders and experts from across the Open Banking and Open Finance ecosystem in November for its first in-person gathering in 18 months, as Open Banking governance in the UK is poised for a period of reform.
Open Banking payments platform Token is the headline partner of this year’s event, which takes place on 4 November 2021 at the Business Design Centre in London.
More than 80 headline speakers have been confirmed, representing the breadth of financial services, including the UK’s largest banks, fintechs, credit card and payments providers, business lenders and regulators, across five stages.
The speaker line-up includes Dr Bill Roberts, head of Open Banking at the Competition & Markets Authority, Innovate Finance CEO Janine Hirt, Rune Mai, CEO and co-founder of Aiia, Charlotte Duerden, UK managing director at American Express, Starling Bank’s chief banking officer Helen Bierton, head of Open Banking at NatWest Group Daniel Globerson and Dr Leda Glyptis, chief client officer of 10x Future Technologies.
They will gather to share lessons learned from the initial implementation journey and insights into the future of the industry, as well as what is required for continued adoption of Open Banking and Open Finance around the world.
Todd Clyde, CEO of Token, said: “We’re delighted to support the Open Banking Expo UK as its headline sponsor. Since last year’s Confex, Open Banking has seen tremendous growth and is fundamentally changing the payments landscape.
“As Open Banking payments reach a tipping point, we are excited to reconvene together with industry innovators and visionaries to carry forward the mission that Token shares with Open Banking Expo: to drive the shift to an Open Banking-powered world.”
Co-founder of Open Banking Expo, Adam Cox, said that this year’s Confex comes at a time when “we all anticipate change in the governance of Open Banking in the UK”.
“It is therefore the perfect opportunity to bring together the Open Banking and Open Finance community in Europe to explore how far we have come on the implementation journey and what the next chapter will look like,” he added.
“Furthermore, the world of Open Banking payments has exploded in recent months and we’re delighted to welcome first adopters to share their insight as the market predicts continued growth.”
