HTML5-based financial charting provider ChartIQ has launched the latest version of its Finsemble platform, which allows clients to combine third-party applications into their in-house systems with no additional development work required.
Finsemble 4.0 features a new application catalog and app launcher that helps financial institutions and technology providers to quickly assemble new and existing components into bespoke desktop applications. The upgraded version also enables businesses to curate and access their large application libraries, making it easy for end-users to discover and organize the apps that are most relevant to their work.
Other new features include an updated design and user experience, remote desktop for Windows 7 and 10, as well as FDC3 support. In addition, Finsemble 4.0 remains with pre-loaded charting, blotters, chat, news, and market data widgets from ChartIQ and an ecosystem of third-party providers.
The upgrade is ChartIQ’s latest development since the company secured an undisclosed strategic investment from US banking giant Citi for its Finsemble desktop interoperability offering. The latest funding round came a few months after ChartIQ raised over $17.0 million in Series B funding, led by Germany-based investment firm Digital+ Partners.
“Many organizations don’t realize that the way they are working just isn’t working. Within the finance industry alone, end-users are using dozens, often hundreds of different applications that do not easily connect or communicate with each other. This is a huge waste of time and money, not to mention a barrier to innovation,” said Dan Schleifer, CEO of ChartIQ.

Expanding into crypto space
ChartIQ provides financial charting and data visualization software to banks, brokerages, financial portals, trading platforms, and research analytics providers. The Virginia-based player in the so-called ‘smart desktop’ segment has also expanded its product suite for cryptocurrency traders with a crypto-specific analysis and trading toolkit. The product is considered a charting tool but is bundled with many other features to help traders develop and execute their strategies.
The offering is the latest in a spate of deals since the trading software maker expanded into the cryptocurrency market, culminating in partnerships with leading bitcoin exchanges like Coinone, BitStamp, and Bittrex, amongst others.
Powered by the HTML5 Charting Library, ChartIQ’s market depth chart lets traders get access to live-streamed price, volume, and order book data from tens of crypto exchanges in real-time.
For the B2B side, it offers a powerful charting engine that can handle heavy loads of cryptocurrency data, together with 100 technical indicators, drawing tools, social sharing, and saving capabilities that improve engagement and retention rates for brokerages.
