The Global Open Banking Report 2020 – Beyond Open Banking, Into the Open Finance and Open Data Economy

Report, published: October 2020

The Global Open Banking Report 2020 follows the journey from Open Banking to Open Finance and Open Data Economy and provides key insights about the benefits of Open Finance for different areas of financial service

Technological progress, changes in costumer behaviour, competition, regulations, the current Covid-19 pandemic, they all have forced financial institutions to step up their game, partner with agile fintech players, and create new, innovative products to help ease the customer journey. 

Structured in six comprehensive chapters, The Global Open Banking Report 2020 analyses the steps taken by (traditional) banks to open up and innovate, and provides insights into what they have learned, what the challenges are, but also regarding the opportunities brought by Open Banking. Moreover, the report features a mapping of the key Open Banking players (the glue that holds the ecosystem together), all while providing crucial considerations in order to achieve true digitalisation of financial services and make Open Finance a reality.
