    Operational open banking - Looking beyond the theory and regulatory compliance

    So far, many banks seem to have treated open banking as a regulatory compliance issue.

In this paper, we revisit the fundamental drivers of open banking and suggest ways that banks can seize this unique commercial opportunity.
