Open Banking Expo Reunites Open Banking and Open Finance Ecosystem After 18 Months Apart

London, UK, Sept 10, 2021 - (ACN Newswire) - Open Banking Expo, the largest global community of Open Banking and Open Finance executives driving the biggest digital transformation in the financial services sector, will this November bring back together European innovators, disruptors and visionaries.

On 4 November 2021, leaders and experts from across the breadth of financial services, including the UK's largest banks, fintechs, credit card and payments providers, business lenders and regulators, will gather to share lessons learnt from the initial implementation journey and insights into the future of the industry, as well as what is required for continued adoption of Open Banking and Open Finance across the globe.

With Token as its headline partner, this year's event, the first in-person gathering in over 18 months, comes at a time when the industry is anticipating change in Open Banking governance in the UK and follows the mandate from the Competition & Markets Authority (CMA) on variable recurring payments (VRP).

Todd Clyde, CEO of Token, said: "We're delighted to support the Open Banking Expo UK as its headline sponsor. Since last year's Confex, Open Banking has seen tremendous growth and is fundamentally changing the payments landscape. As Open Banking payments reach a tipping point, we are excited to reconvene together with industry innovators and visionaries to carry forward the mission that Token shares with Open Banking Expo: to drive the shift to an Open Banking-powered world."

Adam Cox, co-founder of Open Banking Expo, said: "This year's Confex comes at a time when we all anticipate change in the governance of Open Banking in the UK. It is therefore the perfect opportunity to bring together the Open Banking and Open Finance community in Europe to explore how far we have come on the implementation journey and what the next chapter will look like. Furthermore, the world of Open Banking payments has exploded in recent months and we're delighted to welcome first adopters to share their insight as the market predicts continued growth."
