Open Banking Report 2021

Report, published: October 2021

Open Banking Report 2021 follows the race for relevance in banking, how Open Banking inches closer to Open Finance and Open Data Economy, and provides key insights about how Open Banking reinvents business models

As the world struggles to return to a pre-pandemic state, we sat down with industry experts to track the progress in innovation, changes in customer behaviour and education, regulation influence over the market, and the status of competition in different verticals. All this allowed fintechs and financial institutions to set aside their differences and stand together for the common good: improving the customer experience through new and innovative solutions.

Structured in nine comprehensive chapters, the Open Banking Report 2021 analyses the regulation-driven and market-driven global landscape, addresses consumer education, embedded finance, Banking-as-a-Service, how Open Banking revolutionises payments, monetisation models, unlocking new business- and consumer-value. Also, the report features two mappings, one of key solution providers present inside our report and one with key Open Banking players from across the industry.
