Open banking is at an inflection point. This year the Open Banking Roadmap will conclude and in support of regulators and the Future Entity, industry will engage to determine the priorities to extend open banking data-sharing and open payments and inform the design of the Future Entity. UK Finance is looking forward to this engagement and working as a partner with the regulators to inform their thinking. We?d like to do that with a wide range of firms to ensure that our thinking and engagement with stakeholders are well informed by a wide range of market participants.

The event will include a panel discussion with Dan Globerson, Head of Global APIs, NatWest; Kat Cloud, UK Policy Lead, Plaid; Tom Pope, UK Lead and Head of Payments and Platforms, Tink; and Charles Damen, Chief Product Officer, Token.

After the panel, Phillip Mind, Interim Director Digital Technology and Innovation will explain how interested firms can continue to participate in any future discussions on these developments through the launch of a new UK Finance Digital Innovation Group.
