Beyond Open Banking 2020

2020 and the Road to Open Finance

The only ongoing source of data on what people want from Open Banking and how the industry is gearing up to provide it.



21 Features explored

We selected use cases likely to be enabled by Open banking. In each case respondents were asked if they would use the feature or not, and if so, what action they would take to access that kind of functionality.

Trust data unpacked

Respondents answered questions around levels of trust in the institutions they engage with such as banks, comparison sites, tech companies and social media companies. The data allows us to understand the role trust plays in feature adoption

Attitudes towards privacy and security

Consumer concerns around security and privacy are two of the primary restraining factors preventing Open Banking adoption. We explored this alongside respondent’s adoption rates to inform our analysis of where the opportunities lie.

What next for Open Banking?

The report exposes both the consumer demand for Open Banking enabled features (based on the results of an ongoing YouGov survey) and the feasibility / readiness of the technology, via 50+ interviews with leading fintech strategists. Through the repetition of like-for-like surveys every other quarter, it represents the only source of data (that we know of) on both consumer-focussed trends and the speed of change within the industry.
