Xignite enhances Bond Master Data API

Xignite, a provider of market data distribution and management solutions for financial services and technology companies, has 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. The Bond Master API enhancement increases the coverage from the United States to 190-plus 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.

 
Unlike legacy fixed-income data solutions, Xignite’s Bond Master API is cloud-native and offers a robust selection of use-case-based endpoints. Developers can easily integrate these endpoints into their product or app, regardless of type, amount, or frequency of data, without the need for any complex integration logic. Unlike file-based data delivery solutions, the Bond Master API makes on-demand integration into downstream security master or compliance systems frictionless.

“Because much of the benefits of a reference data service derives from its breadth, depth and quality of coverage, these enhancements give you the added peace of mind that comes from knowing your holdings are validated against a complete universe,” says Vijay Choudhary, Vice President, Product Management, Market Data Solutions at Xignite. “These enhancements eliminate the need to maintain an on-site bond security master, which ultimately saves our clients time and eliminates significant unnecessary expenses.”
