The Nordnet File Import App allows for financial transaction data interchange — including order data — between Nordnet and a customer-facing platform. The app integrates with with Bricknode’s Bricknode Financial Systems, a full suite of brokerage APIs.

Bricknode says it sees “a need for our customers to being able to offer their end-clients a customized experience to monitor their accounts and receive information.” The idea is for the BFS API to allow wealth management services “to create whatever apps, portals and experiences they wish in order to strengthen their relationship with their end-clients.”

This layering of services for private-labeling is increasingly becoming an area of focus in wealth management. There has already been a well of out-of-the-box fintech services to hit the market — the same wellspring of out-of-the-box services is now coming to wealth management.

Launched in 2010, Bricknode is based in Skovde, Sweden.

Nordnet Bank, meanwhile, is a Bromma, Sweden-based publicly traded financial institution with operations in Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Finland. The company has a market capitalization of about $4.3 billion.
