An institution is a financial institution (FI) such as a bank, investment firm, or other organization, which provides financial accounts for their customers. Finicity has developed over 16,000+ connections to these FI’s over it’s lifetime with more added every day. Finicity’s Institution API’s includes services for looking up supported FI’s and their corresponding details.
Finicity adds an additional layer of assurity for specific FI’s by running them through a certification process. For as many FI’s as possible we certify that the connection is up and running for new customer adds and the specific data points that are needed for a use case are being returned.
A subset of FI’s are direct api integrations. As part of direct api integrations with FI’s we support OAuth security which allows the customer to login directly to their financial institution to permission their financial data.
All OAuth FI’s are indicated in the FI list by the parameter “oauthEnabled” as “true”. For more information please read the following detailed guide on OAuth FI’s.
