An Industry Think Tank – together with Mastercard were creating a community.
Open Banking Excellence (OBE) is an open forum think tank that meets monthly for those in the industry to contribute, educate, share and collaborate with what is now a global movement to make bank data accessible.
The goal of OBE is to create an authentic, collaborative channel for like-minded people to share their stories and collectively have a greater impact within the immediate industry at a practical, real-world level. Creating a huge social impact too!
There is a renaissance happening right now; one that will make a difference to us all in our everyday lives. Open Banking has the force to revolutionise the way we move, manage and make more of our money.
So, we’re creating an industry channel to voice an opinion, a powerful community of pioneers having a transparent conversation, to influence our environment.
The objectives of the group are to:
- Grow awareness of Open Banking and consumer driven benefits
- Establish the Open Banking Excellence meetup as a place where Open Banking workers, fintech’s and advocates gravitate
- Increase expertise develop real world use cases
- Educate, inform, entertain through engagement as a community, with the community
- Proactively contribute to adopting global standards for PSD2
To be clear - this is all about how we showcase the value of Open Banking. How it can change the world and open up new opportunities for consumers, businesses and our social environment. Open Banking was after-all created to enable innovation, transparency and competition in the UK financial services sector.
The format is casual. We always start off with a welcome chat, a spotlight on different topics chosen by the attendees and then move on to member introductions and some great networking – with a few drinks and always something to eat too!
