What is APIX?
In July 2018, the Hong Kong Monetary Authority (HKMA) announced its seven initiatives for Smart Banking with Open API Framework identified as one of the key components. JETCO has taken the initiative by launching APIX in January 2019 – the first-ever open API exchange platform which connects numerous Third-party Service Providers (TSPs) to API providers – offering more than 270 API products that we have gathered across multiple industries.
Our core mission is to provide reliable connectivity for businesses across diverse industries with convenient and seamless solutions. We believe in creating value for customers by adopting industry best practices in our barrier-free API ecosystem. The superior security features we deliver mean customers can enjoy peace of mind and focus on developing product excellence.
