API’s and Toolkits for the Next Generation of Digital Investing
By Tradier Post on Jun 13, 2019 at 11:03:42 PM

Tradier-developer-logo
 

by Dan Raju, CEO and Co-Founder

One single word that defines everything we do at Tradier is “Enablement”. Our products and services are meant to enable innovative investing experiences. Firms and developers can focus on investors, value creation and growth rather than complexities in technology, infrastructure, regulation and data. The following are some of the thoughts that drive our product strategies at Tradier. 

1.      Totally Self-Directed and Self-Service: Online Investors demand the ability to work on a “totally digital” end-to-end online experience. Tradier API’s enable an online experience from platforms where investors can digitally onboard, fund and invest through platforms powered by the Tradier API.

2.      Mobile: By the end of 2020, Mobile will be the primary investing experience including Trading. The very definition of online experiences will be primarily associated with Mobile rather than with a browser on a desktop. The Tradier API’s have been built to scale and optimized for mobile and all major browsers.

3.      User Experience is everything: Online investors react with loyalty to experiences that are simple, intuitive and most importantly convenient. Developers and designers can build totally embeddable and customizable user experiences on the Tradier API’s where they get custody, execution, and data all in one “Brokerage in a Box”.

4.      Beyond an App or Website:  Investors look at apps and websites as services and want these platforms to participate in their overall day-to-day. The API’s must support the distribution of functionality outside the application including IOT, Social, Messaging and voice. Experiences that drive these kinds of behaviors drive enhanced engagement and loyalty.

5.      Data-Driven Personalization: Consumers want to configure their experience in ways that meet their needs. Data-driven personalization will become a huge trend. Consumers rely on platforms to automatically configure their platforms based on their usage. The Tradier engine stores a lot of critical, real-time and historical user data that can help create these experiences.

6.      Unbundling of Legacy Brokers is in full swing: What legacy brokers and banks offered for decades is now being replaced by more agile, nimble and experience-centric platforms. Retail investors are willing to migrate to the newer platforms serving specific and broad needs. Consumers subscribe to ‘Best of Breed Services” than one large legacy provider that offers a large list of sub-optimal experiences under one roof. The Tradier engine today powers over a hundred platforms and is enabling Unbundling of Legacy brokers.

7.      Next Generation Financial Products: We expect to see large implementations of investing taking the shape of a “Critical Capability” within large non-brokerage ecosystems. We expect to see large fintech ecosystems like P2P Lending, Ride-Share Firms, Personal Finance Apps, Small & Midsize Banks, POE Small Business Insurance providers, and others trying to offer investing capabilities to their consumer bases. Early offerings in this direction will attract a large number of consumers. Many of these large firms with ecosystems look at Brokerage to monetize its base (in addition to making their platforms sticky). The Tradier API’s can empower this generation of investing products.

8.      International Offerings: The US markets and particularly US brands have always been associated with lives of consumers globally. We expect a large influx product from existing financial firms and new startups to offer the capability for consumers globally to invest in the US markets. The Tradier API’s have been built to support an international investor including Know Your Customer (KYC).

9.      Convergence: Self Directed Equity Trading and Online Robo-Advisory Services that offer a self-directed experience to invest in Model portfolios will be more looked at as similar functionality. This will result in Online Equity Trading Platforms offering Model Portfolios and Digital Advisors offering direct stock purchase capabilities. Using the Tradier API’s you can build a Trading platform and a digital advisor into one seamless experience.

10.  Subscriptions: We expect to see investing platforms offering fixed monthly subscription-based pricing models. Tradier offers rich set of simple pricing options that can enable firms to offer subscription-based investing products.

11.  Abstraction: Users must be completely abstracted from Market Complexities as much as possible. They should not be distracted during their experience with Market Complexity. The Tradier API’s have been built to be compliant and provide the required abstractions from Brokerage, Clearing, Market Data, Regulatory, legacy infrastructure, and routing complexities.

Opening up access to financial markets from the hands of Legacy Online Brokers
By Tradier Post on Apr 19, 2019 at 11:20:46 AM

Op 2

How hundreds of trading and digital investing platforms depend on Tradier making it one of the fasted growing brokerage firms to process millions of trades and shares valued at billions of dollars. 

For decades, large brokerage firms decided how the average investor invested in the stock market. The incumbent players set the goal posts on how investors learn about the market, process market insights, consume content, perform analysis and, most importantly the fees for service. With the limitations in technology, it comes as no surprise that the market is dominated by players such as Charles Schwab, TD Ameritrade, E*Trade, Interactive Brokers and Fidelity.

Over the last 7 years, however, the tectonic plates of financial services have shifted. Technology has altered the landscape of investor interaction with the stock market, now enabled by the internet, and the rising demand for digital investing experiences. These changes have led to rapid unbundling of the traditional brokerage house and investors seeking much better platforms and value that meets their own needs.

The inescapable demand for personalized experiences by online investors, paired with the inability of legacy brokers to innovate, has ushered in a new breed of offerings, apps and services that are bringing new ways of trading, investing and content to market. Tens of millions of online investors across the globe are adopting these platforms in droves. Supporting more than 200 of these platforms is an API-focused brokerage firm called Tradier.

Meet Tradier - The open fabric that is powering Investing

Tradier was built with the goal of opening markets through an ecosystem that creates more choice, lowers prices, and encourages innovation in ways the traditional players have failed to enable. Brokerage is a burdensome, yet essential component required by any trading platform that seeks to connect investors to the stock market. Tradier solves this problem with its “Brokerage as a Service” offering. It offers a very rich suite of application programming interfaces (APIs) and web properties that simplifies what would be years of technology, regulatory and data hurdles. Companies can build trading and investing platforms within weeks, that traditionally required years and millions of dollars create.

As a cloud fabric offering, Tradier APIs are readily available for anyone to launch their investing platforms. Tradier provides an array of one-stop solutions ranging from APIs and web capabilities that enable developers to build custom trading, research, analysis, robo-advisory and real-time data applications. Everything from account opening, funding services, portfolio management, trading and reports are available and easy to adopt as APIs and web modules for everyone to use. Dan Raju, Co-Founder and CEO of Tradier says “Think of Tradier as your Brokerage extension whose main goal is to enable you and see you build great investor products and succeed”.

A few firms like Interactive Brokers, TD, E*TRADE offer connectivity-based products today but are limited by challenges attempting to put API wrappers on legacy backoffice infrastructures and support structures. Most legacy brokers have huge conflicts asking trading platforms to use them as a back office when they are offering direct investor products themselves that compete with them.

Today, Tradier is the fastest growing ecosystem of connected investor applications in the market with over 200 supported platforms. More and more active traders prefer to use a Tradier connected platform rather than the legacy alternatives as they always get better value, functionality and most importantly support.

Evati democratizes investing for everyone

Evati is a rapidly growing Digital Advisor. Evati had a simple mission: making saving and investing easy and accessible to everyone. CEO Pete Clemson wanted to create a product that would empower the everyday investor to balance today’s lifestyle goals with of tomorrow’s financial needs.

In order to accomplish this goal, Evati needed a brokerage solution that would enable average investors to open an account easily, fund their accounts with large and micro deposits seamlessly, and offer an intuitive portfolio experience in a scalable and secure manner.

Using Tradier’s New Account Opening API, Funding API, Account Services API and Trading API, Clemson and the Evati team were able to create an easy-to-use, inexpensive platform tailored to empower investors of any background to achieve even a wide range of financial goals.

Today, Evati offers an innovative way for casual finance dilettantes to be smart about their money. Investors of any experience can customize their investment goals and monitor their performance. Evati’s goal-based investing is free for the first month and then only $1 per month for accounts under $5,000 and after that a small 0.36% per year charge Yearly.

“We are excited about our growth and adoption of Evati from consumers,” said Clemson, “Tradier has been instrumental in providing essential brokerage microservices that Evati needs in order to deliver our services.”

Tradier is a unique solution designed to empower ideas. From TradeHawk’s equity and options trading platform to Evati’s robo advising platform, Tradier’s APIs can allow creative individuals to focus on harnessing the power of ideas without the hassle of piecing together the tech know-how.
