396. Insights: Do consumers care about Open Banking?

52min listen

Sarah Kocianski is joined by some great guests to discuss the first 2 years of Open Banking in the UK - what's worked, what hasn't and how many more opportunities and innovations are yet to come.

In today's Insights show, Sarah Kocianski is joined by a fantastic panel of guests to discuss the past 2 years of Open Banking. This week's guests include:

  • Shefali Roy - COO and CCO at Truelayer
  • Olly Betts - CEO and Chief Product Officer at OpenWrks
  • Simon Vans Colina - CTO at Fronted
  • Kieran McHugh - Open Banking Lead at Monzo

It's been two years since Open Banking first arrived in the UK and in today’s Insights show we discuss the past, present and future of Open Banking. Starting with the basics, we ask how far has Open Banking come and how is it continuing to grow in the UK? Our panel of guests are all already putting Open Banking to use, but are customers aware of it yet and are they embracing the possibilities? Third-party service providers certainly have been and are driving innovation in this sector, however the same cannot be said for incumbent banks.

So, what can banks do to better take advantage of Open Banking, when will we see it being embraced in other parts of the world, and will 2020 be the year of Open Banking?

All this and much more on this week's Fintech Insider Insights show!
