Intrinio launched a fintech marketplace this week and this blog explains why Intrinio is making this change, how the user experience will be the same, and how it will be different.
Why a Financial Data Marketplace?
Intrinio’s mission is to help investors save money and make time so they can live more meaningful lives. Investors need innovative applications that make data entry and analysis easier so they can spend more time conducting research, generating insights, and questioning assumptions.
The challenge developers face in creating these applications is getting data- traditional data providers make financial data for app development expensive and hard to use.
Get the Intrinio Financial Data API
Intrinio’s stock API was designed by financial professionals for developers, a rare situation in the world of fintech. This makes the API easy to integrate and scale for a developer while the data structures are intuitive for financial analysts.
Even with this solid foundation, getting started with the API can be challenging – developers need to understand how to work with a RESTful API and understand financial data. This article explains a few of the resources Intrinio has made available to help you get started. It contains three major sections:
- A summary of the tools you’ll need to get started using the API
- An explanation of how to make your first API call
- A list of SDKs that include sample code in many languages
We have been hard at work over the past several months building the first investing community of its kind – a complete ecosystem for financial data and investment analysis. Intrinio features a robust and transparent Valuation WebApp, a comprehensive API with Excel Add-in, and a collaborative platform for discussing investment prospects.
While we still have much work to do, we are making our beta app available for testing and feedback. You have the opportunity to tell us exactly what you want us to build. This includes everything from views of certain data in the Webapp, to data sets delivered by the API/Excel Add-in, to companies you would like for us to cover.
We are in the process of writing documentation for everything, specifically the API and Excel Add-in, so in the mean time, please feel free to ask any questions in the Forum. We will do our best to respond within a few hours.
Thanks for the interest in Intrinio. We are very excited for what the next several months will bring.
