What is Open Banking?

Open Banking is about making payments and customer data available to third parties at the customer’s request through the use of Application Programme Interfaces (APIs). APIs are the glue commonly used to connect computer systems and therefore can be used to build great user experiences.

The use of APIs for banking leads to a new value chain for the delivery of services. Third parties and their software development teams become customers of the bank’s new API products.

The third party can build, market and support applications that are then used by end users.

These end users will maintain a relationship with both a bank and the third party. Open Banking essentially creates a multi-sided platform that encourages innovation and creates opportunities by working in tandem with the end user’s existing banking relationship.
