Lipper info via DSS rest api

Hi,

I can query fundallocation for funds via dss api but I could not find any way for getting Lipper Global Classification, further lipper information, benchmarks etc via DSS rest api. Any example or links to the references would be really helpful.


Thanks!

Irem

Hello @emine.arikan,

Some of the information on Funds, including Lipper funds, can be obtained via Entity Search ( DSS REST Reference Tree) and Fund Search (DSS REST API Reference Tree).

From my testing, I do not see LipperIDs populated as PreferredIdentifierType:

{
                {protocol}}{
                {host}}{
                {api}}Search/FundSearch
{
    "SearchRequest": {
        "DomicileCodes": null,
        "CurrencyCodes": null,
        "SubTypes": null,
        "IdentifierType": "Ric",
        "Identifier": "LP68233262",
        "PreferredIdentifierType": "LipperID"
    }

}

Results in:

{
    "@odata.context": "https://selectapi.datascope.refinitiv.com/RestApi/v1/$metadata#Collection(DataScope.Select.Api.Search.FundSearchResult)",
    "value": [
        {
            "Identifier": "LP68233262",
            "IdentifierType": "Ric",
            "Key": "VjF8MHgwMDAzZjgwODllNjhiZWJifE1GUVV8TFA2ODIzMzI2MnxSSUM",
            "Description": "Galaxy CSI Tencent Jian 100 A",
            "InstrumentType": "Fund",
            "FundName": "Galaxy CSI Tencent Jian 100 A",
            "FundAdministrator": "Galaxy Asset Management Co., Ltd.",
            "PortfolioManager": "Galaxy Asset Management Co., Ltd.",
            "DomicileCode": "CN",
            "CurrencyCode": "CNY",
            "InvestmentType": "Equity",
            "SubType": "MutualFund",
            "AssetStatus": "Active",
            "IssuerName": "",
            "IssuerOrgId": "171173"
        }
    ]
}

However, for authoritative answer on the best way to query, and the content being populated as well as your DSS ID permissioned for this content, I would suggest to contact Refinitiv DSS content experts via Refinitiv Helpdesk Online -> Content -> DSS, directly. Let us know if you are able to proceed?

From API integration viewpoint, Refinitiv Data Platform (RDP) offers HTTP REST request/response integration. It allows access to extensive funds information, including LipperID and several classifications. RDP Search is not released, it is currently in Limited Release/Beta.
