Dutch Security TechFund tackles financial crime with Fraud Dynamics
By investing in Fraud Dynamics, the Dutch Security TechFund of TIIN Capital is once again realizing its ambitions of making society more secure. This is done by investing in companies where security is key. A company such as Fraud Dynamics, which has a clear vision on how to tackle financial crime, fits in seamlessly with the strategy of the TIIN Capital fund to build a broad portfolio on this topic.
Fraud Dynamics is a young company with a lot of experience and strong network in the financial sector and the prevention of financial crime. This is increasingly driven by ongoing digitization, cyber risks and changing regulations. With the proven better results of Fraud Dynamics, both regulatory requirements can be met and financial crime can be effectively combated. A current issue given the costs as well as customer and reputation damage associated with this gatekeeper position.
Fraud Dynamics was founded by Sjoerd Slot, who, as an advisor to banks, was confronted with the major challenge for the financial sector in this field. He is enthusiastic about the investment of the Dutch Security TechFund. “This enables us to quickly scale up internationally and to further strengthen the link between regulations and algorithms. We’ve gotten to know the TIIN Capital team as a real partner to achieve our ambitious goals”. Roel Reijnen, early-stage partner of TIIN Capital, adds; “Banks have recently been focusing more on innovative solutions, partly due to the recent incidents and attention of supervisors. The usual approach, often aimed at modelling already known criminal behavior, falls short and leads to many false positives. As a result, a, cost-efficient and customer-friendly payment service is under pressure. The Machine Learning solutions from Fraud Dynamics lead to better detection while achieving lower customer nuisance for the financial institutions”.
About Fraud Dynamics
Fraud Dynamics was founded by a number of experts in the fight against financial crime with the aim of getting out of the constant cat-and-mouse game between banks and criminals, ie “stay ahead of the game”. From the new office in Leusden, with an international team and network, the company develops software that automatically generates fully compliant fraud / money laundering detection models that can be used within existing transaction monitoring environments. Due to this automated approach, in combination with anomaly detection, it achieves many times more granular results than the usual. And with advisory board members such as Fred Teeven (former State Secretary for Justice), Rene Troost (former DNB, ABN AMRO and RBS) and Victor van der Kwast (former Fortis and ABN AMRO), the company also has a lot of expertise in banking and financial crime prevention.
