In our journey to democratize finance, Benzinga engineers built a Government Trades API.  This endpoint includes any transactions made by the house/senate and their families. Fully embeddable for brokerage apps, research platforms and media sites, Benzinga’s team built this endpoint to help provide end users with the confidence needed to invest.

Staying ahead of the market requires access to timely and accurate information, adding government trades to your investors arsenal can help users justify trades – ultimately increasing user activity and engagement. Partners incorporate this data into their UI and leverage updates for push notifications. 

Help your users, who may not have as much information as their government officials, better protect and grow their portfolios.
