The Financial Data Exchange (FDX) is a nonprofit organization that is dedicated to unifying the financial industry around a common, interoperable and royalty-free standard for the secure access of user permissioned financial data, aptly named the FDX API. FDX has an international membership that includes financial institutions, financial data aggregators, fintechs, payment networks, consumer groups, financial industry groups and utilities and other permissioned parties in the user permissioned financial data ecosystem.
FDX exists chiefly to promote, enhance and seek broad adoption of the FDX API technical standard and is dedicated to five core principles of user permissioned data sharing: Control, Access, Transparency, Traceability and Security.
The FDX board of directors includes organizations from across the financial ecosystem and all tiers of membership are given the opportunity to participate in the development, growth and industry acceptance of the FDX API and other objectives through FDX working groups.
FDX exists as an independent subsidiary under the umbrella of the Financial Services Information Sharing and Analysis Center (FS-ISAC), whose mission is to ensure resilience and continuity of the global financial services infrastructure.
