- The financial data platform

Our story

Working at leading financial institutions and data providers, we all experienced first-hand how difficult it was to keep pace with the latest financial innovations and an increasingly fragmented Fintech service provider landscape. Integrating this dynamic ecosystem into legacy workflows and generating actionable insights proved particularly challenging.

In fact, we couldn’t find a comprehensive solution that didn’t involve a lot of trial and error and a high level of manual configuration and complex implementation.

So we decided to build it.

Sikoia is a financial data platform, unifying third party data and APIs into a single interface. Combined with our smart workflows and advanced analytics, we extend the capabilities of your existing systems without the pain of traditional integration projects.
