Navigating open banking and payment systems in a disruptive era:

Key imperatives for financial institutions

Programme Details

Background

Globally, Open Banking initiatives are key elements of regulatory and policy interventions, that leverage the increasing interconnectedness of financial services, emerging technologies, and increased competition within the banking sector.
