Our end-to-end Open Banking platform helps you collect and use Open Banking data to drive better outcomes for you and your customers.
For many financial institutions, Open Banking starts with a need to comply. As a Data Holder you need to publish Product Reference Data and enable your customers to share their own financial data.
As Australia’s most experienced Data Recipient, Frollo can make Data Holder compliance a lot easier and more efficient.
Our Data Holder testing platform provides the tools to confidently test all parts of the CDR specifications, across UAT and production. Automation and expert support ensure efficient and comprehensive testing, whenever you need.
Our PRD Portal turns your obligation to publish Product Reference Data into an opportunity to gain a competitive advantage. Save time managing product data and keep an analyse competitor products in our competitive insights tool.
Banking was the first sector to launch as part of the Consumer Data Right (CDR) on 1 July 2020. Just as in the UK and other countries, in Australia, this is commonly referred to as Open Banking.
The Consumer Data Right (CDR) puts consumers in control of their data, by giving them the right to share their data between service providers of their choosing. More than 100 banks currently make it possible for their customers to share financial data with third-party providers.
In the first few years after Open Banking launched, a lot of work was done to make all of the banks (Data Holders) and their products available for consumers; as part of a phased roll-out, the Big Four banks were the first to enable data-sharing for their customers in 2020.
At launch, Regional Australia Bank and Frollo were the two companies that were accredited to receive Open Banking data. Regional Australia Bank allowed customers to use it for streamlining lending applications, and Frollo used Open Banking in its money management app.
Open Banking will ultimately give consumers more control over their banking data and how it is used. It enables them to safely share banking data with trusted third parties such as banks, fintechs and mortgage brokers, helping to significantly streamline many processes where financial data is required.
In short, Open Banking offers greater transparency for consumers, making it easier for them to manage their finances and get better deals – while also driving more opportunities for innovation and competition across the finance sector.

When Open Banking launched, only the Big Four banks had to enable their customers to share data. Now, more than 100 financial institutions (Data Holders) let their customers share data, providing more than 99% coverage of household deposits.
Australia’s Open Banking regime is unique in the depth and breadth of data that’s available. Data Holders share data from more than 30 different financial products, including savings accounts, mortgages, business banking accounts and credit cards. This data isn’t limited to just the transactions either; it includes things like rates, fees and product information to enable easy product comparisons and financial advice.
As the Consumer Data Right is continuing to expand, Open Energy and Open Finance will bring different products and providers into the system.
