Open Banking

Attention: open in a new window. Print

What is Open Banking

In 2019, the Australian Government passed Consumer Data Rights (CDR) legislation, giving consumers and small businesses new rights over their personal data.
CDR paved the way for Open Banking, which allows consumers to share their financial data with accredited organisations. This will make it easier to compare products and services, and switch between different financial institutions.


Is it secure?

At Macquarie Credit Union, data security is of utmost importance and Open Banking is no exception. Open Banking is your choice, and your data will be protected by privacy safeguards, which will keep you in control of how companies can use your data.
Third parties providing services via Open Banking must be accredited by the Australian Consumer and Competition Commission (ACCC) and comply with all privacy and security requirements.


The benefits of Open Banking

As the system matures, it is expected to provide a number of benefits including:

  • Making it easier to secure a loan
  • Accessing budgeting tools that let you track and plan your spending
  • Being able to switch more easily from one financial institution to another.
