Barclays API Exchange

Barclays was built over centuries. Our longevity is an extraordinary achievement, especially against the backdrop of multiple financial crises, international conflicts, and the agricultural, industrial and now technological revolutions. We have built a world-class API Exchange to serve a new growing community of digital first businesses. The API Exchange is a global API platform empowering communities of businesses, developers and innovators by providing secure access to new products via APIs. We are continuously making improvements to the API Exchange based on developer feedback and research.
