Hanoi and London, 8 March 2024: SAVIS and Konsentus today announce that, together, they have created an operational structure for open banking in Vietnam.

SAVIS, one of the country’s leading providers of digital capabilities, and a key supplier of technology services to the Vietnamese financial services community, engaged Konsentus, a global provider of open banking advisory services and trust infrastructure, to collaboratively create a legal and operational framework for open banking.  

In support of the country’s vision to develop an advanced and high-quality connected digital society for all individuals by 2030, SAVIS sought support from Konsentus to create a framework for an innovative and cutting-edge open banking infrastructure to enable further growth and development.

Konsentus has worked collaboratively with SAVIS to:

  • Draw upon open banking international benchmarks and learnings to set out open banking use cases that should be prioritised for Vietnam
  • Develop a set of principles by which the Vietnamese open banking ecosystem can operate (e.g. the respective roles and obligations of different actors, and the governance model that will be required)
  • Define requirements and operational processes for technology implementation
  • Develop technical specifications

This open banking framework will provide the foundational bedrock for open banking in Vietnam and will allow the market to take the next step towards an open data sharing ecosystem It puts the nation amongst other market leaders in the region.

Mr. Van Hoang Nguyen – CTO, SAVIS GROUP commented: “Open banking can enable economic growth and social development. It provides a comprehensive view of all financial data to customers and enables businesses to access a wider range of financial services. Banks cooperate with third-party providers to optimise the user experience when using financial products and services. With open banking ecosystem, consumers can execute direct payments to merchants from their bank accounts, eliminating the necessity for card-based transactions. Konsentus has been a crucial partner in understanding global best practice and defining the appropriate structure for the Vietnamese market. We are sure that what we’ve delivered together is tailored for the market and will set the country up for future success.”

Vietnam is a burgeoning economy but 44% are still unbanked and 70% still live in rural or remote areas. Open banking can support financial inclusion and the broader digital transformation agenda. Konsentus looks forward to supporting Vietnam on its open banking journey.”
