Project Overview

"Featurespace, the world’s leading provider of Adaptive Behavioural Analytics for fraud detection and risk management, announced that ClearBank®, the U.K.'s first new clearing bank in more than 250 years, has selected its ARIC™ platform to provide clients using its clearing and banking services with an innovative approach to fraud and AML detection.

Following a competitive evaluation process, Featurespace was selected for its ability to deliver a custom, machine learning-driven solution that learns individual behaviours and detects anomalies in real time. The ARIC platform's multi-tenancy functionality, which allows ClearBank to deliver advanced fraud detection and AML transaction monitoring to multiple clients with a single deployment and without requiring additional integrations, was also a critical factor in ClearBank's decision. With multi-tenancy, the bank can share specific data between its clients, while maintaining the privacy and security of customer data."
