State Street launched FIX API for Fund Connect ETF platform
State Street has recently launched a Financial Information eXchange (FIX) application programming interface (API) for its Fund Connect ETF platform.
Fund Connect ETF is a key portal within State Street’s GlobalLink product suite that enables the creation and redemption of ETFs, designed as a single point of access to many issuers.
The portal’s automated order placement solution and comprehensive integration to order management systems has supplied a direct link between APs, distributors, order takers, sub-advisors, and issuers.
The new FIX connectivity method drives increased efficiency, reduced operational risk and enhanced communication between parties. Now available to all participants on the platform, the enhancement offers connectivity and electronic communication through an integral industry protocol used in electronic trading.
This will allow market participants to send orders directly from their order management system (OMS) to the Fund Connect ETF platform streamlining the ETF creation and redemption process.
Fund Connect ETF also recently released the ability for issuers or their agents to approve AP creations and redemptions via RESTful API continuing to deliver increased connectivity and straight through processing for the ETF primary market.
