10:30 AM Constructing An Infrastructure To Support Open Banking To Become A World Leader In The Open Banking Ecosystem

While Open Banking will signal huge opportunity for the financial industry, there is also an assumption that sharing data will pose numerous threats to a business, be they security centered or the threat of increased competition in the field. However, these fears can be mitigated with a strategically planned data strategy and infrastructure. As Head of Open Banking at DBS Singapore, Jitendra has already begun rolling out Open Banking initiatives in the Asian market and here will be able to shed light upon the necessary steps to ensure data infrastructure, governance, culture and operations all align to create a high functioning Open Banking program within any regulatory environment.
