API Connectivity

The Phoenix American Application Programming Interface (API) streamlines investment onboarding with direct connectivity to the STAR-XMS shareholder database.


Streamlined New Investments and Transactions

What is an API?

An Application Programming Interface (API) is a set of programming instructions and standards defining a way for a computer application to communicate with a user or another program. It is a type of software interface, offering a service to other pieces of software.

APIs can be designed to interconnect two or more applications enabling them to share and/or process data uniformly and securely. The API defines what data is exchanged, how it is formatted and how the two applications can securely exchange the data.

The Phoenix American API enables secure, uniform transmission of data between any website or outside system and STAR-XMS for new investment data, profile changes and transactions to be processed.

Fast and Accurate Input Into Your Shareholder Database

Why We Developed an API

Phoenix American API connectivity creates a seamless data connection between the website or other data gathering application used by a client fund sponsor for new investments and the STAR-XMS transfer agent system. Using the Phoenix American API, it is easy and secure for an investor to enter new investment data on a fund’s website for instant input into the fund’s investor registry of record without delay, error or significant cost.

API connectivity is just one way Phoenix American streamlines the back-office process for client funds by speeding the execution of new investments, eliminating errors and bringing down costs.
