In recent years, financial institutions as well as entrants such as 'FinTech' companies and 'BigTechs', have started to use consumer data in new and innovative ways. This use of consumer data can have potential benefits to both consumers and financial institutions, but it may also pose some risks. Even though there are general rules regarding the use of data, very little is specific for the financial sector. Is there a need for a framework on the EU level to regulate the use of consumer data in financial services?
