Open banking was designed to open the retail banking market by giving everyone access to the data they needed to deliver banking services. Initially viewed as a massive boon for fintechs, and a worrying threat for banks, the mindset of the latter is shifting.
Every financial transaction generates data, which means that every business in the financial services sector has a hugely valuable resource right under their nose. Until recently, very few businesses and banks were actually able to make use of this data. Even those who held the right expertise were often held back by the cumbersome legacy systems which remain prevalent in the banking sector. Now, things are changing.
We’re big fans of open APIs – they bring much-needed transparency to the banking industry and are a catalyst for better services. And while PSD2 will usher in an era of open APIs, it does so in a whisper – offering only payment data and thus an incomplete picture of a customer’s full financial life. The future is open APIs that make all data available – and create a foundation for anyone to build services that result in better financial choices for us all.
Instead of resisting, banks should embrace the opportunity to embrace the spirit of PSD2. First mover advantage is huge.
