Open Banking Excellence
Finance Edge is delighted to be part of the steering committee of Open Banking Excellence.
Open Banking Excellence is an established and trusted community of people looking to raise awareness about how making bank data accessible for third parties would benefit customers. Our mission is to be the authentic voice representing a global movement of like-minded experts who through collaboration provide technical, regulatory and legal insight into Open Banking and its wider implications for a dynamic and innovative financial sector.
The Financial Data and Technology Association is a global association for financial services companies operating in fintech. Our members provide innovative financial applications and services to empower customers to make better decisions and take fuller control of their financial lives across all their accounts, credit cards, loans and investments. We seek to work with government, regulatory authorities and the financial services industry in our mission to open up the financial sector all over the world to the benefits of financial data and technology.

FIRtech Hub brings together all the players in the fintech, insurtech and regtech ecosystem at both the policy and execution levels. With offices in Southeast Asia, FIRtech Hub is a centre of gravity for collaboration domestically, regionally and globally.
As a non-profit organisation, we work with regulators, established financial institutions, educators, technology providers, professional services companies, investors and startups to foster open communications, cooperation and education. We go beyond discussion to achieve tangible results for our members and the wider community.
Sector players often place their staff in our Hubs alongside startups, creating a rich environment for innovation and investment. Our experience in Europe has shown this approach not only breaks down the silos that often separate the various sectors, it also spurs breakthrough results, as evidenced by the many unicorns that have come out of those centres.
FIRtech Hub supports each stage of a startup, from idea validation to funding to international expansion. We have the required know-how, networking, infrastructure, mentoring and education all under one roof.
