Xignite, Inc., a provider of market data distribution and management solutions for financial services and technology companies, today announced it won the Best Real-Time Market Data Initiative at the Inside Market Data & Inside Reference Data Awards.
A longtime leader in the market data cloud space, Xignite provides financial data through its innovative cloud APIs, which are developer-friendly, reliable, and endlessly scalable. Xignite data is normalized and ready-to-use, eliminating common pain points with legacy providers, while maintaining global coverage and institutional quality.
This award recognized Xignite’s work with SoFi, a leading digital personal finance company. In 2019, SoFi launched SoFi Invest, a free consumer investing service, and enlisted Xignite to power the entire platform, from its robo-advisor capabilities, to financial newsfeed, to real-time market alerts and curated stock list. SoFi has identified a number of ways in which these key features are driving member engagement – for example, 10% of users who receive a market alert make a trade within an hour.

“We are honored to be recognized for Best Real-Time Market Data Initiative. Xignite was the first to bring market data to the cloud, and we have continued to innovate and point the way to the future of this unique subset of the industry,” said Stephane Dubois, CEO and Founder of Xignite. “The SoFi collaboration is a great example of how a firm can leverage our diverse range of APIs to build an all-encompassing platform and scale it rapidly. As we look to the future, we will continue to serve our clients through transformative offerings, including our suite of Xiginite Enterprise Microservices, which we announced in July.”
The Inside Market Data & Inside Reference Data Awards are held by WatersTechnology and recognize industry excellence within market data, reference data and enterprise data management.
