The annual summit has attracted some of the most influential international speakers from as far afield as New Zealand, Japan, Russia, Canada, the US, Australia, Germany and the Netherlands. These key players will join experts from the UK to debate and discuss the future of open finance during the two day event in Scotland’s capital.

The agenda covers issues such as customer data right, consent and includes sections on an international view of open finance and global standards. International speakers at the summit include Steve Wiggins, Chief Executive of Payments NZ, Tatyana Zharkova, Managing Director at Russia’s FinTech Association, Yuko Kawai, General Manager for Europe at the Bank of Japan and Arturo Gonzalez Mac Dowell, President and CEO of Spain’s Eurobits.

“We’re delighted to be bringing so many industry experts to Edinburgh next month to debate and discuss the delivery of open finance and the opportunities this gives to empower consumers to take fuller control of their financial lives.”

The Edinburgh summit will also include the Open Finance Awards which have been created to recognise excellence in providing innovative financial applications and services.
