Summary Open banking refers to the concept of banks opening up access to their data to third parties, most commonly via open APIs.Typically, open banking is being introduced at the behest of regulators, such as the CMA in the UK.
Both public (e.g. product specifications) and customer data (account and transactional data) come under the remit of open banking.
Consumers will have the right to share their account data at their discretion with approved third parties in order to gain access to extra products and services. These may include account aggregation services that give users a single view of all the accounts they hold with different providers, or services that allow consumers to make accurate product comparisons.
The ultimate goal of open banking is to encourage innovation by making it easier for specialist providers to compete with banks on a more equal footing, and hence to improve outcomes for consumers by making more choices and options available to them.
Open banking will have a huge impact upon the retail banking sector in the longer term. The use of APIs in financial services is already experiencing massive growth, with the number of relevant APIs listed with Programmable Web, an independent global directory of APIs, increasing by over 1,400% since 2010.
Banks that embrace the concept will be able to become one-stop shops for the best products on the market, crowdsource the development of new services, and generate revenue by selling access to their data and capabilities.
