Introducing Mutual Funds APIs

We've just launched a new set of Mutual Funds APIs that change the game for mutual funds trading. We're making available end-of-date quote data, as well as years of performance, risk, holdings, purchase info, sustainability, and profile summary for 200,000+ international funds from 50+ countries.
We've designed our new APIs to make it as easy as possible to search, filter, and sort mutual funds so that you can slice the market any way you need to. Using our new /mutual_funds endpoint, you can search for any fund, family, or type.

For instance, to get the list of 50 most significant mutual funds, make the following query:
https://api.twelvedata.com/mutual_funds/list

As always, you can filter by many parameters, including country, family, type, etc.
Mutual Funds prices are updated once a day after the market is closed. Standard price endpoints are available for that, such as /time_series, /quote, and /eod endpoints.
For example, to find out the primary information of Vanguard 500 Index Fund Admiral Shares, we can query
https://api.twelvedata.com/mutual_funds/world/summary?symbol=VFIAX&apikey=demo

This gives us a detailed profile of the fund.
Mutual fund summary
Once you’ve got a summary, you should be able to query all other fund’s metrics individually or altogether.

We’ve spent the last few months tuning performance, and we’re excited to make this fully available to everyone starting today. Check out the docs, and leave us feedback.
