Banking Innovation

Market disruption can be a threat to existing players, but it also brings opportunity. Open banking has increased competition and paved the way for new products and services. On the back of this, embedded finance has the potential to reshape the entire financial ecosystem. New players are entering the space, and seemingly every company now has the opportunity to become a fintech. But what does this mean for existing financial institutions? How can new revenue streams be identified and maximised? And what role does data play in the financial sector moving forwards?
