One of my banks provides both OFX and QFX files. I believe the QFX is the Quicken version of OFX. It seems to work the same as the OFX file so maybe your bank will support it.

QIF has been in use for a long time and the files are handled pretty
well in KMM, and KMM has transaction matching capability, although OFX
is, I think, generally regarded as superior in this respect.

My bank, as did yours, ceased support for OFX, sadly about a month after
I transferred to them because of their OFX support.  I switched banks
again, but also wrote a script to handle CSV files.  This has now grown
into a plugin in KMM, which allows import into KMM without needing
conversion to QIF.

If your bank provides CSV files, then it's possible you may find that
they give you more information than QIF, such as account numbers and
running balance.
