Welcome to 2024! We’re gearing up for an even bigger and better year ahead. We’re focused on the Government’s direction on Open Banking with close attention to the ongoing Commerce Commission review. We’re also eagerly anticipating the Government’s stance on the Consumer Data Right (CoPD Bill) seeking clarity to propel fintech innovation forward.
But first, we can’t wait to reconnect at our FinTechNZ Hui Taumata – Thriving together. This year, we’re doubling down on our efforts to gain insights from abroad, particularly from the United Kingdom and Australia.
