Best way to plan for a marketplace banking future

As the Big 4 prepare for their Open Banking ‘Pilot Program’ and the new February 2020 deadline, pressure has heighted to ensure a robust, reliable and secure regime for Australian consumers. All other banks can gain exclusive insights into their strategies to assist in preparing for their own unchanged July 2020 deadline. All key managers in financial organisations must determine what their organisation may look like in the future and how services will be created, marketed and distributed.
