Helen Child

Founder of Open Banking Excellence (OBE)

I’m the founder and former CEO of the UK’s first EMI to be awarded issuing licenses by Mastercard and Visa. Pioneering at the time – thanks to ‘the’ most extraordinary team.

Now I’m the proud co-founder of Open Banking Excellence (OBE), a rapidly growing global community of Fintech’s, Big Tech’s, Regulators and Services Providers.

Our OBE community brings together thousands and thousands of engaged Open Banking and Open Finance pioneers, around the world, looking to learn from each other, collaborate and shape a new growth trajectory through contribution and exceptional content.

OBE is the industry’s campfire. A safe place to spark discussion and have an adult debate.

This adage is fitting and true: “When you bring great people together AMAZING things happen!”
