Open Banking GFT webinar on Bobsguide this Thursday, May 17th

Open banking is here to stay and fast becoming a reality for financial services organisations that want to stay competitive in terms of innovation and customer offerings. But what are the practical aspects that organisations need to consider as they prepare to seize the opportunities presented to them in the open banking environment?

To answer this question, GFT & Bobsguide are hosting a webinar on Thursday May 17th from 3pm – 4pm BST entitled ‘Open Banking – are you ready? A panel of industry experts will discuss the key building blocks for financial services as firms begin to construct their open banking strategies. The panel includes:

Christian Ball, Head of Retail Banking, GFT
Michael Maier, Co-Founder, Fidor Bank
Louise Beaumont, Co-Chair of Open Banking Working Group
Michael McCaw, Editor of Bobsguide

In the lead up to the webinar, Christian Ball shared some of his latest thoughts on open banking and what he will be discussing during the webinar. “The reality is that Open Banking is more than just a new department pursuing a new opportunity. This topic is more wide-ranging; it is technical, it is infrastructural, it is about agility, it is about those new hybrid teams working together quickly and at pace across the bank, and it is about new partnerships.”
