We are at an inflection point

With the financial services industry facing a wave of digital disruption, the sector is starting to reshape. The change is driven by new technology, regulation, the need for cost reduction and changing consumer behaviour.

More than ever, small business customers have a choice of which financial services institutions they have a banking relationship with.  Global adoption of the API by financial services and fintechs coupled with the customer having the choice to share their financial data from within Xero is shifting the power back to the customer whilst opening up opportunities for banks and business finance providers to innovate and better serve the small business market.
