Data Overview

The core component of the WealthTech API is high-fidelity data processing and aggregation. We collect data from multiple sources, including:

  • Financial custodians: These are institutions that hold information about end-client accounts, transactions, and other trade-related data.
  • Market Data providers: These organizations supply market data for securities, including reference and pricing information.

Let's take a closer look at both of these data types available in BridgeFT.

Custodial Data

We collaborate directly with several financial institutions, such as Schwab, Fidelity, Pershing Asset Management, Millennium Trust, and other major custodians. Below is a comprehensive list of custodians integrated into BridgeFT, along with their respective IDs on our platform:

We are continually working to enable additional data feeds. If you work with an institution that is not listed here, please let us know, and we will add it to our integrations queue!

Custodians provide data directly to BridgeFT. These data pipelines do not rely on screen scraping or user credentials. In other words, our direct feeds remain intact even when clients change their credentials or vendors update their technology. The data is of high fidelity, accurate, delivered in a timely manner, and always accessible via the WealthTech API platform.

Market Data

We source market data from financial custodians and third-party market providers, encompassing both securities reference and pricing information. The custodian's price is consistently regarded as the accurate price that a client received in any given transaction, even when cost basis information is unavailable.

Market data empowers us to provide additional context to transactions, compute accrued income, and facilitate further portfolio analytics. For more details on how to integrate and access all the required market data through our Market Data API, please refer to our Market Data Guide.
