The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) has published industry feedback from its Open Finance call for input from December 2019.
Responding to the findings, Imran Gulamhuseinwala OBE, Trustee, Open Banking Implementation Entity said:
“Both today’s report from the FCA and the recent Kalifa Review clearly highlight the transformation and the benefits that open banking is bringing across financial services.
“More than three million consumers and SMEs are using open banking enabled apps. That’s not only boosting competition and innovation, but it means that customers are getting better deals and more suitable products.
“The success of open banking is reflected in the strength of the UK’s FinTech sector. The UK has more open banking third party providers than the whole of the EU combined. That’s something not only to celebrate, but crucial in understanding how we maintain momentum and pave the way for open finance and Smart Data.”
