  7. 7. |714 October 2019X-Tech London • Little API standardisation (at least 5 initiatives, with “local flavors”). Risk of fragmentation ➔being “looked at” in the market; STET en Berlin Group “interoperable”; API “hubs”/aggregators pariially solve complexity • PSD2 prescribes a minimum of mandatory –and thus free- functionality to be exposed through the dedicated interface. TPP view is that there are a lot of “missing bricks” that should have been in PSD2. The API Evaluation Group failed to bridge the gap ➔ERPB SEPA API Access Scheme Wg • Especially the remote cards ecosystem is not ready for SCA and exemptions (3DS 2.2 reuired) ➔ forebearance The PSD2 promise vs reality ….
  8. 8. |814 October 2019X-Tech London ERPB SEPA API Access Scheme Wg

  10. 10. | ERPB SEPA API Access Scheme Wg • Did the group deliver on the mandate? ➔ yes • Report final May 23rd, ERPB endorsement asked 13 June • A Scheme approach seems feasible; business model? • Holistic approach that can be used beyond PSD2 • Scheme must be attractive for all participants …. • However on request of TPPs the group was put on hold 14 October 2019X-Tech London 10
  11. 11. | PSD2: some lessons learned …… • PSD2 was not devised as the first step to Open Banking; we “reverse engineer” this policy goal; GDPR was developed in another Brussels “silo” …… • Journey to Open Banking should start with a shared view of where this journey should lead • Clear legislation including a proper governance structure with a balanced representation of all stakeholders is essential to provide good market outcomes • Regulation should be technology neutral yet detailed and prescriptive enough to provide clear guidance to market participants; a Scheme seems logical • A well-defined view of what the co-operative space is and where commercial space and competition start is essential; a business case for all players in the ecosystem helps! • It’s not just about Open Banking but about Open Data sharing, across all economic sectors. Not just financial services (inspiration from Australia …)! . 14 October 2019X-Tech London 11

  19. 19. | “Innovation? Humbug!” (Chris Skinner’s blog, Saturday) • “A decade later, everything has changed. I believe it is due to two key technologies coming of age. The first is obvious: telecoms merged with technology to create the smartphone revolution led by Apple. Moving from a telephone to a computer in the pocket and purse has shifted humans from conversations to swipes in just ten years. That is a radical change. • The second is more subtle, but just as important. Cloud computing has come of age. Again, a nascent technology a decade ago, the fact that anyone can launch an app or an API in an app store – that wouldn’t be around if it wasn’t for the smartphone – and scale that app or API overnight to take billions of transactions – that wouldn’t be possible without cloud – is the radical change. • As a result of these technologies, we may finally have reached the point where the over-estimations of Bill Gates (..) are now a reality (?) 14 October 2019X-Tech London 19
