Swedish bank Ikano Bank will deploy fraud prevention technology from UK-based TruNarrative, as part of a wider digital transformation programme. The implementation will involve integration of the TruNarrative client onboarding and fraud detection platform with Ikano’s new technology architecture to facilitate the bank’s Europe-wide fraud prevention strategy.

The TruNarrative solution will provide a single point of reference for the bank’s financial crime strategies across multiple jurisdictions with central visibility and reporting. This will help Ikano Bank to quickly expand into new markets, detect and prevent fraudulent applications, and deliver robust risk scoring and intuitive case management.

The TruNarrative platform will be integrate with Ikano Bank’s technology stack, including its core architecture, front-end website and native apps. The partnership means Ikano Bank can make manual and automated decisions within a single platform, enabling; localised approaches for each region.
