Open Banking & APIs Report 2017

Open Banking & APIs – a new era of innovation in banking The Open Banking & API Report 2017 gives insight into the nascent landscape of Open Banking in Europe. Divided into two parts, it aims to give you both the basis of knowledge necessary to understand the latest developments on the topic, as well as practical examples and best practices in Open Banking. First, the report elaborates on the innovations in Open Banking and the issues that still stand in the way of universal adoption. Afterwards, we will dive into the best practices and new business models in both banking and fintech. The rise of Open Banking, in which banks have the opportunity to work with innovative players and technologies in the growing fintech community, is driven by three factors: firstly, as a result of accelerating digitisation, leading customers, both businesses and consumers, to expect meaningful, actionable insights based on their data at any time on any device, while still being in control of who has access to their data. Secondly, the regulators in Europe push for more openness in banking, as evidenced by the ‘access to account’ (XS2A) provisions of the PSD2. Lastly, the rapid expansion of the use of open API technology in financial services has supported the openness in banking, providing the key technology needed. PSD2, and XS2A in particular, are accelerating change in payments, innovative banking applications, and respective business models by leveraging payment functionality and account information. The Open Banking ecosystem is brimming with potential, but there is still much debate on the functional scope of “access to account”, effective business- and operational models, and standardisation in terms of technology, legal, and operational matters. In this report, we aim to give an overview of the key issues that need to be addressed. We have asked key players in the market; banks, consultants, merchants, and fintech to give more insights into the debate
