Carlos Figuerdo, CEO and Founder Open Vector.
Previous Head of Data Standards for OBIE
Carlos will be speaking about the current and future opportunity of Open Banking and the impact this will have on social and financial inclusion. He will focus on how the landscape will change as it relates to the roles of Banks and Fintechs but also the impact it will have on consumers both banked and primarily the unbanked through products and services we are yet to see.
