Project’s key features

ETF website

The website easily pulls stock data on a daily basis when the market opens.

Advisor site

Thanks to Contentful, an admin can create and manage any section on the website—from titles to SEO data, as well as create articles for the blog.

Challenges and Solutions

Implementing analytics


Most website analytics tools misinterpreted data when users moved from the Advisor site to the ETF platform.


We have implemented Matomo analytics that provides cross-domain tracking. It helps the client avoid situations when the user transition between domains is considered a new visit.

Gathering data


Ultimus API that is used on the project is not the most efficient tool for pulling data at market open time, so we had to find a way how to ensure its good performance.


We have decided to create a cron job and pull data three times a day to keep the data on the website constantly updated.

What we have now

We’ve built two fully functioning websites and continue working on new functionality.
