INTERSHORES I The Hong Kong Monetary Authority Asks Selected Banks To Participate Customer-Consent Data Sharing Initiative And Complete Preparations By End 2023

Hong Kong Monetary Authority has introduced the Interbank Account Data Sharing Initiative to selected licensed banks through its internal circular on 15 August 2023, aiming to allow customers to securely and efficiently sharing their bank account data with other banks subject to their consent.  The Initiative started off by the preliminary study among the HKMA’s Fintech Facilitation Office (FFO), the Hong Kong Association of Banks and the participating banks, which suggested that interbank customer-consented data sharing between banks can help digitalize banking operations, strengthen risk management of banks and enhance customer experience.      


Through the IADS pilot programme, selected use cases and implementation issues will be examined to help formulate a possible implementation approach.   

The Banking Supervision Department of the HKMA has been consulted and is supportive of requesting participating banks to implement the IADS initiative to realise the full potential of the initiative and maximise the benefits to the banking industry.  The HKMA expects the selected licensed banks to enrol as a participant in the IADS pilot programme and complete all necessary preparations by the end 2023.
