Open Banking and Open Data: Ready to Cross Borders?

whitePaper | July 29, 2022

Would you like to be able to aggregate your data across your bank accounts? Enable your tax accountant to see your financial information? Enable the App of your choice to make a payment on your behalf? Or perhaps you would like to enable your residents or customers to perform these tasks in a low cost, secure and interoperable way? There is a global movement towards “Open Banking/Open Data” the paradigm shift where a user authorizes the release of their data from one entity (a data holder like a bank) to an entity where they would like it to go (a relying party like a FinTech). This is also known as “user-consent based data sharing.” Although this movement started with banking use cases and gaining access to data held by banks, it is now expanding to a range of other verticals including brokerage and mutual fund services, insurance, telecommunications, utilities, health and more.

Bank Accounting Advisory Series

whitePaper | August 1, 2022

The Office of the Chief Accountant (OCA) is pleased to present the August 2022 edition of the Bank Accounting Advisory Series (BAAS). The BAAS expresses the OCA’s interpretations of accounting topics relevant to national banks and federal savings associations (collectively, banks or institutions, unless otherwise specified). We hope that you find this publication useful and that it continues to be a practical resource for bankers and examiners. The BAAS is updated annually to address ongoing accounting questions, newly issued and updated accounting standards, and emerging issues observed through March 31. Consistent with prior editions of the BAAS, the 2022 update does not focus on questions related to the impact of the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) and does not reflect policy statements and rules issued in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. COVID-19 policy statements and rules address specific challenges and are not intended to be used by analogy in non-COVID-19 situations.

Innovating through platforms and ecosystems

whitePaper | May 7, 2022

Many traditional financial services products are being commoditised. They are becoming irrelevant in the lives of customers. They are seen as table stakes. What customers really care about is value, convenience, and security. And what they want is a financial services ecosystem uniquely tailored to their specific needs. I am not particularly prone to making predictions. But – of this – I am fairly certain: in the next 15 years, all of the most successful financial services organisations will be platform players. The leaders will be defined by the ecosystems that gravitate around them. They will be measured by the incremental value they deliver their customers. And they will grow based on their ability to meet their customers’ needs.
