Mitsubishi UFJ Utilizes API Server as their Fund API Infrastructure

Mitsubishi UFJ Kokusai Asset Management chose CData API Server as their Fund API infrastructure to support quick, low-cost development and operation of Fintech / Open Innovation solutions.

Mitsubishi UFJ released Fund APIs allowing their users to retrieve fund-related information for all Mitsubishi UFJ Investment Trusts, such as reference prices and net assets. Delivering this information as an open API is an industry-leading move. By utilizing the provided APIs, Mitsubishi UFJ's clients (investment trust information providers and analysts) can rapidly receive information in the formats they want.

"What they want to see is not only MUKAM fund information but comparisons with other funds using real-time analytics. Web API is the best way to provide timely and easy-to-use information to our various information users." said Mitsubishi UFJ Senior Manager, Mr. Murayama.

The Mitsubishi UFJ team ultimately chose the CData API Server because of their need to rapidly develop industry-standard, professional APIs. The wide variety of supported data sources ensures that the API Server will meet current and future needs for APIs:

"To be honest, it's hard to comment on the experience with CData API Server, because all the development was done so quickly and without any complications."

-- Mr. Murayama, Senior Manager IT Innovation Group IT Planning and Management Division, MUKAM
