The promise of Open Banking is nothing short of disruption: Putting consumers in control of their data, and driving innovation and competition in the financial sector.

  • But 2.5 years in, what's the real state of Open Banking in Australia?
  • How many banks are available, is the data any good, and are businesses actually using it?
  • There certainly has been a lot of talk about this.
  • Using Frollo's insights as the Australian leader in Open Banking, Ben will separate fact from fiction and bust some Open Banking myths.
