The Rise of Open Banking

Recorded On: 11/22/2016



Filippo Scognamiglio, Principal, The Boston Consulting Group


Open Banking is the movement to enable digitally-focused companies to leverage traditional banking services - from access to basic account information to complex multi-party cross-border transactions - in real-time and with little or no human intervention.

As brick-and-mortar branch traffic is replaced by online traffic to bank websites, US banks are becoming increasingly reliant on third-party platforms, hence the need for "open" platforms. Open platforms create new opportunities for banks, but also come with risks.

Furthermore, customers are increasingly focused on frictionless payments (e.g., Uber) and experiences. There is a risk that financial institutions are becoming more utility-like when competing directly with FinTech payment startups and established firms.

Finally, aggregators are becoming a safety concern for client information, a direct cost, and an intermediation threat for banks. Banks are combating the threat of aggregators (such as by developing Secure Data Exchanges (based on API technology).

This webinar will address key questions on Open Banking, including how different banks are trying to solve the customer experience puzzle, and how banks are reacting to the threat of aggregators.
