PIMFA-AECIS – Case Management and Collaboration System

PIMFA and associate member, Financial Crime Intelligence Ltd have launched the ground breaking PIMFA-AECIS (Assimilated Economic Crime Intelligence System) to enable intelligence sharing between member firms.


The cloud based PIMFA-AECIS system is unique as encrypted data is only made transparent when an exact data match occurs between two or more cases. Members are able to record their cases and then collaborate at their discretion with other organisations in their own Trusted Intelligence Sharing Partnership.

Participating firms remain in control of their own data throughout and the PIMFA-AECIS methodology strictly adheres to GDPR. The platform incorporates comprehensive control, audit and governance capabilities.

“We believe that AECIS is an essential component of the fraud investigator’s toolkit. Intuitive and very straightforward to use, AECIS fills a strategic gap in the fight against financial crime”
