Since its inception in 2018 open banking has made a significant impact on the financial landscape in the UK. For over four years now, FinTech firms have been benefitting from open APIs that enable them to customise their open banking apps and services based on the consumer demand. This wouldn’t be possible without open banking platforms that have mastered open banking solutions, acting as a technological intermediary between banks and third parties for the greater good of the industry and optimal customer experience.
Years of building financial software have taught the Code & Pepper team to associate disruption with positive changes brought about by advanced economic thought and technology. It’s all about the improvement of financial processes so there is more balance between all the market participants.
From a buzzword to reality – open banking has come a long way. It’s now a default setting powering a wide range of products addressed to the retail consumer. Open banking apps have become interfaces for financial services, changing the banking experience.
