Dr Thaer Sabri, CEO of the EMA joined the regulatory panel at Open Banking: What does it really mean? conference on 11 April 2018 in London.
The Open Banking era has begun
Over the next few months, Britain’s largest banks will be required to make the account data of consenting customers available to approved rivals. As envisaged, the new regime will allow up-and-coming challenger banks and fintech businesses to compete on a more-or-less level playing field with existing financial services giants. It has the potential to alter radically the way that people interact with their finances and with financial services providers.
The purpose of this conference was to ascertain what should be ‘best practice’ in open banking. Sessions will cover:
|· The new regulatory environment
· Relative progress of the UK in open banking
· The bank/fintech interface
· Who controls payments?
· The European experience
· The impact of GDPR on open banking: opportunity or threat?
· The balance between fostering innovation and consumer protection
· Will open banking do enough for the financially vulnerable?
We are delighted that Imran Gulamhuseinwala, Trustee of the new Open Banking Implementation Entity will be giving the opening keynote address.
