About Anne


+4 year(s) experience

Anne O’Leary, Research Analyst at Informa Financial Intelligence, helps banks navigate the Open Banking landscape, analyzing the latest product and service trends incorporating aggregation into digital platforms. She also specializes in mobile banking technology.

Anne oversees the production of two quarterly subscription publications, the Open Banking Tracker and the Mobile Monitor, which feature industry trends, current market analysis and expert recommendations for clients. She analyzes industry data and generates presentations for specific client inquiries, with much of her focus on demonstrating the need to adopt Open Banking apps and websites to remain competitive.

Driven by a passion for research, Anne explored the healing and gentrifying effects of urban agriculture on grassroots communities in her undergraduate dissertation as a geography major. She now applies that background to financial services, where she sees parallels with customers’ uneven access to financial education.

Outside work, she tends to her community garden where she grows vegetables and when possible, enjoys travelling and hiking.
