The Consumer Data Right (CDR) was launched in 2020 and continues to grow as more providers become accredited and more sectors become involved. Last year, the federal government made changes to the open banking regime to facilitate increased participation in the data-sharing arrangements effectively allowing clients to share their open banking data with trusted professional advisers, including financial advisers, accountants, tax agents, mortgage brokers, or financial counsellors.
The Financial Adviser Industry has been slow to embrace the benefits of the open banking system. But as CDR is opening up to more industries and more organisations are becoming accredited, participating presents exciting opportunities. Once accredited, and with consumer consent, Advisers will be able to receive and leverage real-time data, using it to create new and better products and innovations in their client service and advice offerings. It will mean more personalised experiences for clients and more streamlined and efficient processes for businesses. Financial Advisers should be thinking now about how to take advantage of CDR. This report outlines the background to CDR, the steps involved to prepare for accreditation, and the benefits for Advisers that are early adopters.
