In his closing address, David Stevenson pointed out that Australia like the UK has a banking oligopoly and that’s a shame. But he stressed that onlookers should watch out for new players that are attacking the oligopoly.
He also urged caution about open banking, claiming customers are scared of it. He added that you’ll have a hard time even with open banking winning investors over.
