Business podcast: Inside open banking

Banks are powerful and it's hard to change banks. Jenee Tibshraeny investigates open banking in this week's feature in Two Cents Worth. She looks at how banks are set to face stiff competition from fintechs they're being forced to share their data with.

Elsewhere in this week’s Two Cent’s Worth podcast, the panel of Jenee, Bernard Hickey and Gyles Beckford look at Fonterra's plans to sell TipTop and at its strategy in China, along with the Government's likely infrastructure announcements this week.

Two Cents' Worth has been launched by Newsroom in a co-production with RNZ. It is the country's first weekly business podcast and will be broadcast just after the midday news on Sundays on RNZ National, will be available on both RNZ and Newsroom's websites - and we plan to make it available on iTunes from later on Fridays.

Each week we will examine one issue in depth and then convene a panel discussion.
