How does an API work?
An API (Application Programming Interface) is a software intermediary allowing two applications or systems to talk to each other. APIs allow your systems and Nordea’s systems to communicate and automatically perform tasks that would otherwise be handled over the phone or on separate platforms.
Our API products are available to customers, and, in some instances, third parties on our Open Banking Platform. To check if you have the technical integration required to connect to and use the API, you are welcome to check your workflows in our sandbox environment without any additional onboarding.
A snapshot of our FX APIs
The FX Market Order API allows you to execute currency conversions at the current market rate via simple integration with your own preferred systems and according to your own rules and triggers. The available FX products are SPOT, forward and swap.
The FX Listed Rates API is designed for companies that want to do cross-border sales while minimising their currency risk. The API can integrate fixed currency rates directly into your applications or systems for predefined periods up to 24 hours for FX SPOT, today and tomorrow value dates as well as “weekend rates.”
The FX Pricing API allows you to retrieve real-time indicative FX rates that represent current market conditions, display them in your systems and use them as a reference for trade decisions.
With the FX Trade Retriever API, you can integrate your preferred system for a secure and automated post-trade processing of your executed FX trades at Nordea Markets.
