BridgeFT, a cloud-native, API-first wealth infrastructure software company that enables financial institutions, fintech innovators, and registered investment advisors (RIAs) to deliver better, data-driven outcomes for their clients, announced today that it has been awarded the Data Aggregation award at the Annual WealthBriefing WealthTech Americas Awards 2024.

The annual WealthBriefing WealthTech Americas Awards program recognizes the most innovative and exceptional firms, teams and individuals. The awards have been designed to showcase outstanding organizations grouped by specialism and geography which the prestigious panel of independent judges deemed to have “demonstrated innovation and excellence during the last year.”

“We are thrilled and honored that the reach and impact of our WealthTech API has been recognized with this prestigious award,” said Joe Stensland, Chief Executive Officer of BridgeFT. “This is a credit to our whole team and to the many partners and clients who have chosen us to help power their own wealthtech innovations.”

BridgeFT’s WealthTech API is the industry’s first WealthTech-as-a-Service platform, offering a single, open API to trade-ready, multi-custodial data, advanced analytics, and application services. WealthTech API eliminates the need for individual data feeds from a range of custodians and back-office providers, enabling wealth management firms and wealthtech application providers to create differentiated, next-generation wealth management applications.

Custodians hold a range of data that drives the investment ecosystem, from positions and balances to client holdings and trades. Each custodian has its own data policy, structure, and systems, forcing fintech companies and other financial institutions to build custom programs to ingest the data. This adds both development time and cost. By simplifying access to the underlying data, WealthTech API allows financial innovators to rethink and streamline their own tech stacks and create differentiated tools and solutions for their own clients using BridgeFT’s applications and developer-to-developer support.

The WealthBriefing WealthTech Americas Awards are part of a global program run by WealthBriefing, and its sister publications WealthBriefingAsia and Family Wealth Report, encompassing all of the world’s major wealth management centers.

Participants around the world recognise that winning awards is particularly important in these challenging times as it gives clients reassurance in the solidity and sustainability of the winner’s business and operating model.

“Every winning entrant has been subjected to a rigorous and independent judging process and should be rightly proud of the success they have achieved this year,” said Stephen Harris, Chief Executive Officer of ClearView Financial Media and Publisher of WealthBriefing. “This year we have seen a marked increase in entrants and interest in all our global awards programs and the WealthBriefing WealthTech Americas Awards 2024 is no exception. These awards give organizations and individuals the opportunity to clarify their strategic thinking, have it independently validated, be recognized internally and externally and to celebrate in style with their peers.”
