Xignite, a provider of market data cloud solutions for financial institutions and fintech companies, announced on Wednesday it recently enhanced its Bond Master API. Xignite offers several APIs that provide real-time, delayed, historical fixed income pricing and reference data for corporate and agency debt bonds.
Xignite reported the Bond Master API enhancement increases the coverage from the U.S. to more than 190 countries, adds additional bond types to support more than two million active bond issues, and increases the ease of use of the API with several new endpoints.
Additional detail on the enhanced Bond Master endpoints:
- The List endpoint for bond type, issuer type, and domicile enables clients to slice and dice the bond universe differently based on use-case.
- The ScreenBonds endpoint enables clients to dynamically and easily screen the bond universe by combining criteria based on the coupon rate, maturity date, callability, and issue convertibility.
- The ListBondDataPoints and GetBondDataPoints endpoints enable clients to more easily pick and choose the reference data points they need to integrate into their systems.
- The GetBondDataPoints endpoint enables access to additional reference data points without requiring changes to an existing implementation.
Vijay Choudhary, Vice President, Product Management, Market Data Solutions at Xignite, then added:
“These enhancements eliminate the need to maintain an on-site bond security master, which ultimately saves our clients time and eliminates significant unnecessary expenses.”
Founded in 2006, Xignite provides cloud-based financial market data APIs to help emerging companies and established enterprises deliver real-time and reference market data to their digital assets, such as websites and apps. The company reported that unlike legacy data providers, which require on-premise infrastructure to store and process market data, its data is accessed through the public cloud.
