About Featurespace

Featurespace is the world-leader in Adaptive Behavioural Analytics and creator of the ARIC™ Risk Hub for fraud prevention and AML transaction monitoring.

The ARIC Risk Hub – a real-time machine learning software system – monitors individual behaviours and detects anomalies to catch financial crime as it happens.
