Fintech & Insurance

Powerful tools to let you monitor investments or sentiment, mitigate risks, and ensure compliance.

Web scraping for finance has the potential to disrupt the financial services industry with data from the web.

The availability of financial data on the web has opened up new possibilities, providing the inputs needed to predict trends, make better investment decisions, automate buying and selling, make arbitrage trades, and build new fintech products.

How fast is the world moving around us?

The newest wave of fintech is already using big data to give them an extra edge over both traditional financial institutions and older fintech companies. Data lets them predict customer behavior, carry out complex risk assessments and tailor their services to an unprecedented degree.

We use the Apify platform on a daily basis not only across our commercial projects but across investment opportunities and internal projects as well. Some team members even use it for the simplification of their daily tasks. Basically, whenever we need to gather and work with data, we reach out to Apify.

Providing actionable data to leading fintech companies and banks

How web scraping and web automation are redefining the finance industry

Price monitoring

Monitor price changes for stocks, cryptocurrencies, forex, bonds, or bank products on the websites of your choice at scale. Streamline the monitoring of prices and interest rates to adjust your own pricing strategy and optimize your performance.

Risk mitigation

Know when there are impending emergencies, such as freak weather, flooding, or Elon Musk tweeting, that could unexpectedly impact value. Get real-time alerts on the first suggestion of unusual patterns from social media, news websites, or meteorological agencies.

Monitor rating changes

Track influential rating agencies such as Standard & Poor’s (S&P), Moody’s, and Finch for rating changes and the latest news to stay ahead of emerging trends and protect your investment. Collect other information that correlates with prices such as the Corruption Perceptions Index or other indices for market analysis, machine learning or new product development.

Web automation for arbitrages

Make faster trades and maximize profits by fueling your algo-trading with data from the web. Optimize your trading strategy and get notified when the price or other criteria for your selected financial instruments change.
