Great to see HSBC working on its Open Banking platform - to allow customers to view balances and banking history on any account not just those held within HSBC.  Having a single view of your current financial health across your entire banking estate should allow better decision making and greater consumer confidence.  

To have a single view of the health of my current account, savings account, investment performance and consolidated pension valuation would be very valuable and something I've long wished for - or maybe ignorance is bliss and Im better off not knowing?!
