Machine learning tends to be more accurate in drawing insights and making predictions when large volumes of data are fed into the system. The financial services industry tends to encounter enormous volumes of data relating to daily transactions, bills, payments, vendors, and customers, which are perfect for machine learning.
Nowadays, many leading fintech and financial services companies are incorporating machine learning into their operations, resulting in a better-streamlined process, reduced risks, and better-optimized portfolios.
Featurespace’s smart technology works in exactly the same way. Using its invention – Adaptive Behavioral Analytics – it has been working with the financial services industry as a technology partner to solve a huge problem in financial crime.
Deployed on-premise or via fully hosted cloud in over 180 countries, the firm’s ARIC™ (adaptive, real-time, individual, change-identification) Risk Hub models and predicts individual behavior in real time for fraud prevention and Anti-Money Laundering. This machine learning allows computers – for the first time – to understand when an individual customer’s behavior is out of character and automatically evaluate risk.
ARIC Risk Hub
The ARIC Risk Hub is live and deployed in some of the world’s largest banks, payment processors, merchant acquirers, insurance companies and gaming organizations. ARIC Risk Hub offers multiple solutions for fraud and Anti-Money Laundering analysts to spot suspicious activity and prioritize alerts with explainable anomaly detection. At the same time, ARIC Risk Hub recognizes genuine customers without blocking their activity, reducing friction.Working as a technology partner to the financial services industry, ARIC Risk Hub is deployed in some of the world's largest banks, payments processors and merchant acquirers.
