Nasdaq Nordic Fund Market Launches On Bricknode
Nasdaq’s Nordic Fund Market (NFM) launches on Bricknode Marketplace. This integration allows the Swedish company’s users to become Nasdaq customers and do business with more than 5000 funds in the EU. For Bricknode the integration confirms the company’s position as one of the world’s leading developers of digital financial tools.
– Our goal is to be the number one cloud based “ecosystem” for financial businesses, institutions, Fin Tech-innovators and app developers. Integrating Nasdaq’s system with ours is an indicator that we are well on our way there, says Bricknode founder Stefan Willebrand.
For the users the integration of NFM means that Bricknode’s cloud based services become even more useful. Through Nasdaq they can choose between two services: NFM Order Routing for automated fund orders or NFM Full Service that also supports settlements, payments, transactions, fees and reconciliation.
Stefan Willebrand again:
– The integration with Bricknode’s platform makes Nasdaq’s services accessible through our API. We consider that a huge advantage, not least because it allows for easy development of new third party apps.
We are a lot like Google in that respect. We too believe in open platforms. We want our users to see possibilities and to develop new products and services on top of the “operating system” we provide. New integrations add value for users and partners alike. Nasdaq NFM is an example of that.
Challenges include illiquidity and fragmentation across borders.
