Webinar: Demystifying Bank APIs – The Qualitative and Quantitative Benefits for Treasurers

Over the past few years, there has been much talk of API Banking and the real-time treasury experience it helps enables. However, adoption has been tentative and there remains a healthy degree of misconception and misunderstanding.


The purpose of the discussion is to bring together senior industry practitioners to help clarify API Banking; what it is, the considerations and drivers, the potential benefits, and the approach to get started.


  • What are Bank APIs (SCB)
    • Comparison with legacy bank connectivity – SFTP/SWIFT
  • Bank API landscape (SCB)
    • Open Banking vs. Premium APIs
  • Advantages and Benefits (SCB + GT)
    • APIs as a Digital Enabler – how APIs can benefit your business (APIs are building blocks that can be assembled into digital solutions to solve your pain-points)
    • API Banking Digital Use Cases – examples
  • Challenges to adoption (SCB + GT)
    • Lack of standardisation across banks, ERP/TMS systems constraints, client operational readiness to move from batch to real-time or to operate both in parallel
    • How to overcome these challenges
  • How to get started – recommended approach
