Tiingo is a financial data portal built because we believe you deserve better.
We've spent years building this platform because we want to empower you with the same financial tools enjoyed by hedge funds and banks, and to innovate these tools in a direction that benefits all.
Built by former hedge fund traders and researchers, we've created tools unlike anywhere else and at a price point many consider ridiculous.
We like ridiculous.
Finance seems to have this habit of screwing people over. We don't like that.
By allowing you to set the price, our mandate becomes to serve you.
Your payments are our only method of monetization.
Our news feeds are some of the most powerful around. Using the latest methods and innovation in language analysis, we can structure and parse out companies within articles and blogs others news feeds miss.
If you would like to be included in our news feeds, or license them within in your own app/site, please read the below.
If you are a blogger or publisher and would like your blog/agency included in Tiingo's feeds, please E-mail us at: Feeds@tiingo.com. We do not believe in making bloggers or news agencies publish on our platform. We link directly to your site or blog, allowing you to maintain your readership and community.
If you are a FinTech company or institution and would like access to our news feed's API, please E-mail us at: Licensing@tiingo.com.
If you are an academic or private institution dedicated toward teaching finance, investing, or markets - we offer tools to help you monitor and keep track of your classrooms to facilitate learning.
Our goal is to give educators the tools to monitor their students portfolios, performance, and risk decisions. If you want to make your class competitive, we also allow you to set trading competitions, complete with features like transaction costs, slippage, and trade limitations.

Rishi started off running computational chemistry experiments at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in high school. By the time he entered University, he co-founded an open-source chemistry tool that became used worldwide by both commercial chemists and academic institutions. The tool was also used to teach classes at Universities such as Georgetown, Penn State, Florida State, etc. This program disrupted a commercial vendor charging $500k/license to big pharma. He also authored and worked on studies related to cholesterol-binding proteins.
Following NIH, he worked for a start-up funded by a famous hedge fund manager alongside two others who, in their free time, nurtured Rishi's interest in trading. Rishi soon after found himself on Wall Street acting as both an exotics trader and treasuries trader. After briefly working at a bank, he joined a quantitative hedge fund as the first employee. There he built trading models and also the technical infrastructure behind the fund. They all did well, realizing a sharpe of 2 and growing AUM 5-fold.
After leaving the fund to think of his next venture, he mentored under a market wizard and experimented within a few ideas until he fell in love with Tiingo. Having bought the Tiingo.com domain many years ago, and having built both a financial literacy and trading software company in University (The Collegiate Investor and The Singhing Trader), he decided to go bigger and re-envision our approach to financial tools. Rishi, from the onset, decided a core tenant of this platform would be to "Actively Do Good" and be accessible to all.
Rishi feels awkward about using the third person, but continues to do it because it seems like he's supposed to. He's a bit of a boring guy who lives and breathes Tiingo and trading, but in his spare time Rishi volunteers his time to help career counselor those trying to break into finance. If you're in NYC, drop him a line at Rishi@tiingo.com. He sometimes plays DotA, but his MMR is pretty awful.
