TISA Open Savings,

Consumer Research Findings

“Open Finance is the future of our industry…Developing this app, and the consumer testing phase in particular, has provided us with valuable, actionable intelligence that will allow us, our partners and the industry as a whole to move forward with this vital project. Ultimately, the main beneficiary is the consumer, who will now be able to view all of their financial products at the touch of a screen.”


TISA OSIP Consumer Testing

Prototype User Analysis Findings

August 2021

Background to research ⬅️ ➡️ 

Top 3 highlights from the research findings:

1. Reaction to the prototype as a concept was overwhelmingly positive – 91% of people found the concept interesting.

2. Having a consolidated view of all accounts was the most popular feature (94% considered it ‘an interesting feature’ and 53% considered it the ‘most interesting feature’)

3. Trust in the security/data protection was of paramount concern and would be an obvious prerequisite before many would commit to using. The vast majority (94%) thought they would be likely to use such an app if security could be guaranteed – strongly supporting our hypothesis that the conceptual benefits behind OSIP would be significant enough to encourage users to connect their accounts.

Get involved in TISA’s Open Finance project

With the consumer’s consent, the OSIP programme will open access to consumers’ savings, investments and pensions data in order to enable the user to have a single view of their finances, encouraging them to become financially more engaged. The Programme is in the Proof-of-Concept phase that is testing the best approach for financial services firms and trusted third parties to share data, identify technical standards and test consumer journeys.
