What is Open Banking?

Open banking is the practice of sharing personal financial information electronically, in a secure way, under the conditions that the customer approves of. API’s allow third-parties to access financial information efficiently, which aids in promoting the development of new applications and services, resulting in better consumer experience. This tech-driven transformational shift to the financial sector facilitates banks, and financial institutions alike to explore innovation.

As the financial services industry transforms further and the relationship with customers is enhanced, open banking will be one of the main drivers of this transformation. Bahrain has already embarked on the Open Banking journey and other jurisdictions in the region are also assessing the opportunity.
