While Canada’s Big Six banks urge caution about the introduction of open banking, the Canadian subsidiary of U.K.-based multinational HSBC wants the federal government to require banks to share information with the fintechs trying to compete with them.

In a February 2019 submission to the finance department’s advisory committee looking at open banking rules, recently made public, HSBC Canada CEO Sandra Stuart requested the government introduce legislation mandating “open banking.”

The call comes as the Big Six banks are urging caution on open banking. HSBC Canada is the only foreign bank or subsidiary to make public its submission to the committee.
