Sibos 2019: an exciting shift in dialogue around Open Banking

Nuapay is delighted to have attended the annual Sibos conference and exhibition in London. This year, the theme of the conference was “Thriving in a hyper connected world.” It demonstrated a specific focus on the capabilities of financial service providers to sustain an agile business strategy in this advancing world of tech payments. Much of the focus was on real-time payments, Open Banking and APIs. Nuapay attended to connect, learn and share knowledge from our own first-hand experience of initiating a new payments platform which is safe, secure and instant – a vital cog in our hyper connected world.

On the Open Banking topic, the UK was the global case study. There is incredible growth happening, with over 300 registered third party providers and growth in usage of 20-30% per month.  The recent deployments of the App-2-App customer experience has led to huge increases in conversion rates, with more than 80% of users initiating via mobile devices.  This year there is a noticeable, and pleasing, shift in the dialogue around Open Banking and APIs.

No longer are Open Banking APIs purely a compliance activity, but there is a growing recognition by the major banks of the opportunities that can be created for customers. More and more banks are taking the initiative to open up their services through APIs, facilitating the growth of a hyper connected world.  Much of the conversation focused on driving further adoption of Open Banking solutions, and how the industry is overcoming hurdles by driving customer recognition, improving the customer experience, and closing gaps in functionality through the introduction of refund capabilities and testing of variable recurring payments.

Nuapay, as a leader in API payments and banking, looks forward to working with the banks and other players in the industry to continue to innovate and develop our next generation banking and payment services.
