From Open Banking to Open Finance: 6 years on where are we now

What opportunities can Open Finance present for your business and where can it really make a difference? What regulatory change do you need to be aware of? Join us and hear from our panel of industry experts.

Event Summary

Pinsent Masons hosted an interactive panel session which will brought together industry leaders to share their views and open the discussion up to the room.

 We focused on open finance by:

  • looking back and reviewing what we think has been most successful over the 6 year open banking journey and what have been the biggest challenges
  • discussing the current opportunities for innovation with open finance data and the use cases for which open finance is most attractive
  • considering regulatory and key stakeholder change on the horizon, including the creation of a successor to the open banking implementation entity, the future role of the FCA in open finance, the potential for PSD3 in the EU and a broader changing UK approach to legislation, and
  • looking at the broader picture – considering where open finance fits within the FCA’s focus on consumer duty, vulnerable customers, financial resilience, well-being and protection against bias and discrimination and changes to payments infrastructure and the potential introduction of central bank digital currencies (CBDCs) and Digital IDs.

The session will took the form of a moderated panel discussion with opportunities for attendees to ask questions and provide comments.
