Making market data easy. Period

Our vision is to empower and inspire the future of finance by making market data easy. Period.

We did not start off as a market data company. Our original product idea was a wealth management platform but we needed  market data to power that platform and could not find any easy on-demand market data APIs – so we created our own. Right away we started getting requests to make those web services commercially available, so we pivoted and started building our Market Data Cloud platform. Today we offer more than 1000 APIs and serve more than 1 trillion API calls annually. We’ve been included twice on the Forbes FinTech 50 list and named “one of the ten coolest brands in banking” and we are proud to count leading FinTech disruptors BettermentFutureAdvisor, Motif InvestingPersonal CapitalRobinhoodSoFi, StockTwitsWealthfront and Yodlee as clients, as well as financial services, media and software companies including BMO, BlackRock, Charles Schwab, and TIAA.

Xignite, pronounced ex-ig-nite,  stands for Igniting Exchanges. We have sparked a FinTech revolution, the first to coin that term way back in 2014, and today we are fueling the digital transformation of financial services.

And along the way we have been recognized for our cloud-based technology.
