With a number of smaller financial institutions juggling a wide range of competing priorities, PIF, Open Banking Excellence and Ozone API are conducting a survey amongst smaller banks and FIs to get a state-of-the-nation view on open banking readiness.

Whilst the survey is still open and further responses are encouraged, the interim results make for very interesting reading.

The stand-out conclusion so far is how positively open banking is seen by the respondents. When asked “How do you view open banking?” not a single respondent viewed it as a “compliance headache” with the majority seeing it as a great platform to grow their business.

More survey results will help us to build the understanding of the challenges faced in delivering open APIs and creating the platform for growth.
