Open banking around the world

A global comparative guide

Publication June 2019

The UK continues to be the global pioneer in open banking through the implementation of the EU Payment services Directive (PSD2) and the open banking initiative by the Competition and Markets Authority (CMA). However, through regulatory reforms and/or market-led initiatives, many jurisdictions are now catching up.

The aim of open banking is to foster competition and innovation within the financial services industry, resulting in a better banking experience for customers, and it has the potential to transform the global banking landscape.

Working with our colleagues across the globe, we have produced a comparative guide to open banking as part of our NRF Institute, to help our clients understand how open banking is being treated in key jurisdictions and the different approaches to implementation.

You can use the guide to

  • Navigate a map to choose the jurisdiction/s you wish to read about
  • Create and customise your own comparative reports
  • Opt to receive email alerts when the laws change in the jurisdictions of interest.
