WatersTechnology - April 28, 2015 — Tradier CEO Dan Raju says the partnership between his firm and Apex was the perfect combination needed to create a new API.
￼￼￼￼￼￼Tradier, a cloudbased financial services brokerage firm, and Apex Clearing Corporation have partnered for an expansion of Tradier's brokerage API that is geared toward the advisory community.
The API will use Apex's clearing and execution platform with Tradier's brokerage API to offer a brokerage platform that includes brokerage operations, clearing, trading and realtime streaming data from r Brokerage for registered investment advisors (RIAs) delivering products digitally.
Tradier CEO Dan Raju tells SellSide Technology the growing demand in the space for an offering was what led Tradier to develop its latest API.
"There are a large number of digital advisors that are looking to bring their customized digital experience to this segment. As such, we wanted to create a product that would help accelerate this innovation in advisory services," Raju says. "Innovation shouldn't be contained with dominant players behind closed doors. We're committed to enabling firms that have experienced technology barriers in the past to be empowered to make their own mark."
Raju says the partnership with Apex — which was spun off from Peak6 Investments, an options trading house, in 2012 — was a matter of bringing similarlyminded firms together to create a muchneeded product.
"The relationship with Apex creates the right combination of an established, leading, and forwardthinking clearing firm with Traider's leading API technology," Raju says. "As importantly, Apex shares our vision of enabling innovation in the digital advisor space."
Going forward, Raju says Tradier will look to foster new partnerships as it develops new products.
"We remain dedicated and focused to enhancing our existing offerings and will continue to focus on creating partnerships that will and help grow the ecosystem and allow Tradier to become the de facto destination to build and launch advisoryrelated products," Raju said.
