What is SGFinDex

SGFinDex empowers you to consolidate your financial information for a comprehensive view of your portfolio.
What is SGFinDex

SGFinDex, or Singapore Financial Data Exchange, is a public good digital infrastructure that allows you to retrieve and share your financial data from Government agencies via MyInfo and private sector organizations with another organization of your choice.

It is a joint initiative by the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS), the Smart Nation and Digital Government Group (SNDGG), and financial institutions.

SGFinDex can help link multiple financial data sources from participating entities to facilitate the sharing of your personal financial information.

For example, you can retrieve your saving balances from banks and investment portfolio value from the CDP, and financial information like HDB loans and CPF balances from the relevant government agencies to help you better understand your overall financial health and plan your finances holistically.

It uses a centralized gateway for efficient data sharing based on shared data and API standards and uses Singpass for authentication and consent.

With SGFinDex, you don't have to manually consolidate your financial data across different data sources, instead, you can conveniently and securely view your consolidated personal financial data on any financial planning application of your choice.

SGFinDex does not allow transactions to be made from your bank accounts.

How can you use SGFinDex?

SGFinDex is a service that applications and banks can use to aggregate financial information about their clients.

How secure is SGFinDex?

SGFinDex uses SingPass as the authentication and authorization mechanism. Every time you want to connect and retrieve your financial information, you need to verify your identity using SingPass.

Your financial information is only retrieved once you have given consent, and you can control which entity to share information with.

Your personal financial data is encrypted when it is retrieved through SGFinDex; only the financial planning application that you have authorized to receive the data is able to decrypt it. Data is also kept confidential and protected during the data transmission process. SGFinDex cannot read and does not store the user’s personal financial data.
