Comment: Impact of Open Banking
Monday, 15 January 2018
Mark Somers, COO at 4most, said: “Open Banking will transform UK banking.  For consumers, the whole experience will be more convenient, with better digital banking capability, more targeted and appropriate products and potentially better deals.  However, it’s also likely to result in the end of free banking and closer scrutiny of personal spending habits.  Greater automation is likely to result in higher levels of fraud, but customers will be covered.  Overall there’s no reason why Open Banking should be any less secure than online banking.”
