Open finance vs. Open banking

What is the purpose of open banking?

Open Banking opens a consumer’s financial data, including banking and other transactions, to financial services firms through Application Programming Interfaces (APIs).

What is open finance?

Open finance is a closely related concept to open banking. It extends the scope of the latter by including services in a consumer’s dashboard suited to their needs such as investments, mortgage, savings, loans, pensions, and insurance policies.

Open finance in practice

Open finance can be helpful in a consumer’s everyday financial situation.

  1. Adding another account from another bank for efficient monitoring of all your accounts. 
  2. Linking your bank account to your investment app/software to gauge how much you can put in for a month.
  3. Having an overview of how much you’re spending
  4. Getting to know and comparing deals from different service providers so you can save on payments.

 

The shift from open banking to open finance is among the paradigm shifts of the industry that is rooted in innovation. In addition to empowering financial institutions, it moves to transform the overall consumer experience for good too.
