A well-informed customer is a loyal customer. Open finance gives you the opportunity to financial data to your advantage – to show the customer why they should a) choose you over their current provider or b) stick with you as your offer is better than other financial providers. If you, with the help of data, can prove that your offer is better than your competitors’, you could even ask for a higher price.
