We workwith sellside firms to upload their events via our API/XML Upload Tool. For sellside firms without internal IT resources, we provide a portal to manually enter events which adhere to our rigid standards.
Every event goes through our proprietary validation process which gives us the ability to provide the buyside with events tagged with the appropriate sector, corporates, analyst and experts.
We have a combined 20+ years of experience working on the sellside developing proprietary tools (CRM, Corporate Access Management) to track Resource Allocation.
We offer a cloud-based API that can be leveraged to upload or extract data from our platform. Everything available on our platform is also available via our API for both the buyside and sellside.
Finiato Inc. was founded in 2014 with the mission to create scalable and innovative solutions for financial services through client-focused collaboration, data-driven decisions and cutting-edge technologies. The team has been working together for more than five years, and has known each other for over 10 years. Prior to starting the company, the team has been building a variety of sellside information system solutions for management, sales, trading and research teams globally.

CorpAxe allows for customizable options for buyside PMs and Analysts, as well as reporting analytics for management. Additionally, CorpAxe allows our buyside clients to manage conference registrations/deadlines, open requests for access, confirmed meetings and attendees, historical meeting consumption, no shows and cancellations.
