In August of 2016, the World Economic Forum released a paper titled “A Blueprint for Digital Identity - The Role of Financial Institutions in Building Digital Identity,” and it said exactly that. The Open Identity Exchange released a paper not long after titled “The Use of Bank Data for Identity Verification,” which specifically highlights one of the key advantages that banks have in offering Digital Identity services, a lot of attributes linked to proofed identities. Yet banks, especially in the United States have thus far been reluctant to offer Digital Identity Services. With a focus on creating innovative products and services, Capital One is bucking that trend by externalizing its Digital Identity capabilities.
