Working Groups

FDC3 OVERVIEW

The mission of FDC3 is to enable true plug-and-play interoperability and discovery on the financial desktop without prior bi-lateral agreements. FDC3 does this by bringing together the key stakeholders in financial software to establish standard protocol, taxonomies, and APIs.

FDC3 has over 100 participants from 40+ financial firms, representing major sell-side, buy-side, and vendor firms across the industry. The program is committed to producing functional, open, and non-proprietary standards.

BUSINESS FOCUS

Participants build agreement around the key interfaces required to support interoperability. FDC3 believes that implementing interop should be fast, easy, and secure. Our focus is on building long term growth for the financial ecosystem that will foster innovation and unlock value across the industry.

SAMPLE USE CASES

Use cases will be far-reaching, for example:
  • Click on a symbol in one app to easily launch launch analytic or trading tools in another app - without prior interaction
  • Transfer trade details from one app (proprietary or vendor) to another, e.g to/from chat, pricers, blotters, OMSs, EMSs, risk, credit, settlement systems, etc.

FOCUS AREAS

  • API specification
  • Context data specification
  • Intents specification
  • App Directory specification
  • Definition of interoperability use cases
  • Support for reference implementations
