THE FUTURE OF OPEN BANKING

Is Open Banking really going to change the financial landscape as we know it? 

Open Banking is a reality and it is re-shaping the financial services industry right now! Europe is at the forefront, but Asia, the Middle East and Latin America are also commited to regulatory regimes. Canada may be next. But is Open Banking really the stimulus to drive innovation and revenue success? Where are we headed and what does the future hold? Accenture’s Global Open Banking Lead will reveal his organisation’s latest report on Open Banking; including their vision for a thriving, open, digital future, and help you navigate where the best opportunities lie.
