We’ve written extensively about the core tenets behind Data Connections, and how we set out to build a reliable aggregator that would connect PocketSmith to a diverse range of data sources. Bringing Sharesight on board as our newest Data Connections partner moves us one step closer to the new world of open finance, one where consumers have more visibility, control and insight from their own data.
“We’re fully behind the Consumer Data Right legislation that is coming to New Zealand in 2022. We welcome a landscape where consumers will have the right to ask their providers to safely share their data with third parties. Working with Sharesight’s API already delivers on the promise of the CDR, with industry standard authentication, security and data access. We’re looking forward to enabling our users to see all their financial and household information in one place,” said James Wigglesworth, co-founder and CTO of PocketSmith.
“At Sharesight, we also believe in the importance of building an open ecosystem of connected fintech apps. A crucial part of this process is our API, a powerful tool that allows fintechs to come together to create an even better solution for customers. The connection between PocketSmith and Sharesight creates a comprehensive net wealth tracking solution, and is certainly an exciting example of how the API can be used to empower people to make better financial decisions,” said Joe Salvati, Director of Partnerships at Sharesight.
