FDATA Director to sit on HMT’s Open Banking Working Group

Andy Maciver, FDATA’s Director, has been invited to be a member of the Steering Committee of the Open Banking Working Group (OBWG).

The OBWG has been formed to build upon the UK Government’s call for evidence on data sharing and open data in banking, and has a remit to deliver a framework for an open API by the end of 2015.

Andy Maciver said:

“I’m delighted to have been asked to sit on this vital group. The Steering Committee will help to shape an open API, which could be a step on the journey to making the UK a world-leader in financial data aggregation.

“FDATA’s members exist as a result of huge consumer demand to be in more control of their financial data in order that they can make better financial decisions. A well thought out and implemented open API can play a big part in providing the environment for innovation to benefit consumers, and I’m pleased to be able to play my part.”
