In what probably comes as a surprise to no one – the pandemic impacted many financial institutions’ budgets, leading to an average open banking spend of €32 million across Europe.
That being said, 47% report open banking budgets are on the upswing in 2021 – which seems to track with our finding on the use cases front. A majority of bankers highlighted several opportunities as ‘very’ or ‘extremely’ important for their business.
So, where’s all that money going? It was a tight race, but payment initiation services stuck out as the top choice for 72% of executives. Out of the 14 use cases outlined in the report, the one that ranked lowest was still selected as a priority for 62% of respondents – which goes to show just how much interest there is, and for a wide range of opportunities.
