API Banking

UK government set up the Open Banking Working Group for banks and FinTechs to develop a framework for an open API standard. This business focus also stems from millennial consumers’ desire for dynamic experience across channels and value chains. API Banking will empower banks to enhance their digital offerings using an ecosystem of 3rd party applications and services to realize new revenue streams. It also helps achieve faster innovation which banks can’t ignore.
