About Financial Crime Intelligence Ltd

Financial Crime Intelligence Ltd was established in 2014 by a management team consisting of highly experienced finance and technology professionals who shared an interest in addressing the alarming level of financial crime.


The benefits from financial institutions sharing intelligence directly with each other were quickly recognised notwithstanding certain data protection challenges.


FCI’s Assimilated Economic Crime Intelligence System (AECIS) successfully addresses these allowing financial institutions to collaborate with each other within the framework of the UK Data Protection Act.


As such, AECIS continues to attract interest from industry bodies and member organisations who see it as an essential tool for protecting the public and themselves.

Our Vision

To significantly improve efficiencies in the use of available fraud intelligence, thereby reducing criminality, whilst at the same time increasing the public’s confidence in the financial sector’s ability to tackle fraud.

Our Mission

To provide financial institutions with a collaborative solution to increase the detection of fraud, increase prosecutions, increase asset retrieval and prevent further criminality.
