DATA SHARING AND OPEN BANKING
As the financial services sector becomes increasingly digitized, there is amplified focus on data, both in its strategic value, and in how it is handled and protected. Data sharing frameworks have been developed in some jurisdictions to help promote competition and empower consumers, though sometimes with differing impacts for different types of market participants, and for the competitive landscape and consumer outcomes, and sometimes with new risks either introduced or mitigated. This panel will discuss the current and future outlooks for the sharing and protection of customer data.
