Incumbents and startups alike are building marketplaces and connecting partners to offer their customers a seamless experience:
Banks are building partnerships as diverse as investing, ecommerce, telecommunications, property and travel
Insurers are becoming “plug-and-play” so partners can embed insurance into their customer’s journey
Ride-sharing firms and ecommerce marketplaces are branching into payments
In countries where people are more likely to have a smartphone than a credit card, telcos are leveraging their customer relationships to enable partners to deliver their services and collect payment
Governments are licencing virtual banks, building real-time payments infrastructure, connecting trade, and driving “Government-as-a-Service”
Underpinning all this is that most versatile of building blocks: the API (Application Programming Interface).
