Opening Banking: Time to Accelerate


Open-banking models possess the potential to enhance competition, foster innovation, and improve accessibility to financial services for consumers and small businesses. They also empower customers by granting them control over the sharing of their data, enabling them to determine when, how, and why it is shared. This control plays a vital role in ensuring users receive superior financial services and products.
