Imran Gulamhuseinwala OBE (Trustee, Open Banking Implementation Entity) commenting on the banks’ challenges of complying with the Open Banking Standards and the positive progress so far:

“They have worked hard to implement the Standards despite many challenges and an ambitious timescale. Yet already we have seen some impressive early signs of new technologies powered by Open Banking – even though we are only mid-way through our roadmap with lots more to come.” Imran added that Open Banking has transformed the financial industry into an “emerging dynamic, vibrant and developing ecosystem – an ecosystem which is rapidly becoming more sophisticated and expansive in its coverage. But with the line of sight we have into the Open Banking ‘pipeline’, this is going to considerably ramp up in 2019.”
Mark Bailie (RBS former COO and Bó CEO) commenting on RBS’s recent investment in challenger bank Loot:

 “Loot is a really exciting brand and one that we’re proud to be associated with. Through its innovative use of technology and intention to change the status quo, it’s quickly built a following of loyal customers, with potential for rapid future growth.”

Ollie Purdue (Founder & CEO, Loot) commenting on the RBS and Bó partnership:

“RBS and our existing investors are fully committed to our company mission to help young people know more about their spending so they can do more with their money. RBS is fully aware and supportive of our existing strategy… The team at Bó are building a brand new bank at the same time as we are scaling Loot. This means there are a lot of synergies and opportunities for the two companies to work together now and in the future.”
