What the FinTech? | S.4 Episode 8 | The future of open banking in the UK

Marion and FinTech Futures editor Paul Hindle discuss whether the new recommendations can help the UK maintain its position as a leader in the open banking space, whether concerns around the lack of clarity in the country’s vision for open banking have been alleviated, and whether there’s a way to monetise open banking amid concerns from banks about the lack of commercial returns.

And finally, we find out what fintech buzzword Marion wants to throw into our Fintech Jail!
