First Call releases BondWatch API for intranet integration

First Call is to make its BondWatch fixed income research database available for searches over corporate intranets.

The Thomson Financial subsidiary is marketing a BondWatch API to institutional buy- and sell-side customers worldwide. Using the application programming interface, subscribers can access BondWatch data by sending an XML formatted query to a Web server that sends back the requested information in an XML format.

The data items available via BondWatch API include: fixed income ownership information on insurance companies, mutual funds, and state pension fund portfolios; taxable and tax-exempt bond coverage; indicative fixed income information such as ratings and pricing data; and contact information on portfolio managers, traders, analysts, and senior executives at buy-side firms.
