What is open banking?

Open banking is a UK standard that gives you ownership of your financial data and allows you to securely share it across banks, fintechs, and other regulated providers.

Traditionally, banks have always kept their customers’ financial data in their own internal systems, which made it difficult for customers to manage their money across multiple platforms and apps. Today, regulation in the UK and EU requires banks to allow third parties to access to customer data via API, where the customer has consented to it.

Open banking gives you greater control over your account data and more flexibility and choice in how you access financial services. Open banking regulations help make sure your data is protected and can only be shared with providers who comply with minimum security standards.
