Massive overdraft! What’s an overdraft? From financing that Maserati or repaying your MBA loan to just getting a grip on where your salary goes or how to manage your upmarket coffee splurges, who do you trust to help you manage your money?

Open banking is certainly providing more options to monitor and manage money across institutions and accounts, with many new financial service providers, partners and platforms. New brands like Yolt and Bud Financial, along with giants like Facebook, may well help you, but how do these ‘non-bank’ names gain your trust?

Our expert panel will look at how platforms and new players, banking-based or code extensions, are working with some of the quickest minds in digital services to gain your trust in new financial options.
