What is best API to lookup ISINs by number or name?

In other words, ideally I would like to have an rest-api like this:

http://api.isinlookup.org/filter={"isin":"US38259P5089"} ->
[
  {
    "isin": "US38259P5089"
    "name": "Google Inc.",
    "type": "Equity"
  }
]

http://api.isinlookup.org/filter={"name":"Google"} ->
[
  {
    "isin": "US38259P5089"
    "name": "Google Inc.",
    "type": "Equity"
  },
  ...
]

Try OpenFIGI (formerly the Bloomberg Global Identifier - BBGID)

  • $\begingroup$ @Vee you can't. Maybe you can pay them to include it $\endgroup$ – XtremeBaumer Mar 23 '18 at 11:13
