If one event in Canada wasn’t enough this June, we’re also excited to be present at the highly anticipated Open Banking Expo in Toronto! This year marks the fifth iteration of Canada’s premier Open Banking event, known for influencing the roadmap and fostering productive collaborations in the industry.
Daniel Kornitzer, a payments expert and Strategic Advisor for Tillo, will be participating in a panel debate that addresses the main challenges of Open Banking implementation. In an environment where the regulatory framework is intricate, and consumer trust is paramount, this panel will explore the need for an urgent, collaborative approach to overcoming these challenges.
The potential rewards of Open Banking in Canada are significant, but it's essential to understand how to navigate the complexities, upgrade technical infrastructure, build consumer trust, and promote healthy competition without creating insurmountable barriers for smaller institutions. Be sure to tune into Daniel's panel at 11:55 on Stage 2 for valuable insights into this critical conversation.
Michelle Beyo, another invaluable advisor at Tillo, is also actively participating in this years Open Banking Expo, moderating both a fireside chat and a panel discussion.
Her fireside chat, titled "Pay by Bank: The Emerging Trend Displacing Cards," will delve into the recent advancements in the payment industry. Focusing on Stripe's recent announcements about their Pay by Bank service, the chat will unravel the drivers behind this transformative trend and its potential impact on the broader financial landscape. This is a crucial discussion for anyone keen on understanding the dynamics of a shifting payments landscape, and we can’t wait to hear it at 11:30 am on Stage 2.
Michelle is also moderating a panel discussion titled "Open Finance Means Open Data – ignore it at your peril!" which will focus on the successors of Open Banking: Open Finance and Open Data. Expert panelists, including Eytan Bensoussan, Chief Executive Officer at NorthOne; Franklin Garrigues, Vice President of External Ecosystems TD; Sandy Kyriakatos, Chief Data Officer at Equifax Canada; and Steven Thomas, Chief Technology Officer at Portfolio+, will discuss the importance of engaging stakeholders from various industries early on to create an open ecosystem, the role of a Consumer Data Right (CDR), and how partnerships can be formed between competitors for the greater good.
