Program deprecation notice

Notice: Per PMC decision, this program was disbanded in May 2020 and its projects now continue to exist as high-level projects under the FINOS Project Catalog.

All FDC3 collaboration activities, including meeting minutes, are now hosted on the FDC3 GitHub repo.

Welcome to the collaboration space for the FDC3 Program!  

The mission of the Financial Desktop Connectivity and Collaboration Consortium (FDC3) is to develop specific protocols and taxonomies to advance the ability of desktop applications in financial workflows to interoperate in a plug-and-play fashion and without prior, bi-lateral agreements.


This Program's Projects and Working Groups can be reviewed on the Foundation's Catalogue, while the latest collaboration activity can be seen on the Foundation's metrics dashboard.


This Program's projects are hosted on GitHub.
