If an API providing inter-firm individual data is an important use case for your firm, or for your customers that are FINRA member firms, we encourage you to submit feedback via the Support Center and select the API Candidate category for the ticket. Please provide as much detailed information on the use case as possible, including contact information, as this will help us prioritize new API candidates.
