Open API Innovation

Financial services is entering a new era of openness. Banks have already been challenged by new developments in key areas such as payments and lending.

Using Open API’s will help todays corporates and institutions scale innovation to partners outside their organisation in niche FinTech services areas. Building this ecosystem is a barrier in itself.

We have built a global FinTech ecosystem of innovators through our corporate innovation mandates making us the best partner to support Open API standard implementation and system transformation for institutions, technology and telecommunications companies.

Combined with our virtual commercial and technical skill set, we can support a full life cycle of sourcing, connecting and optimising an Open API FinTech community. We blend that with deep industry knowledge to make sure we develop and execute in a unique way for each client.
