Fortia has since positioned itself as a key Regtech leader in Europe and is recognized for the innovation and excellence of its products. The solutions harness three key areas: Artificial Intelligence, automatic data processing, and smart business process management.

Innovation is our DNA

Fortia has a real innovation strategy focusing on the development of its know-how and capabilities in the fields of artificial intelligence, machine learning, and deep learning for the financial domain.

Fortia uses its in-house built proprietary algorithms to achieve tailored automation processes, lower considerably operational costs and add efficiency for its clients. The innovation DNA is helping us solving complex business cases in the banking and financial services industry.

We like to turn highly complicated algorithms into usable, efficient and auditable models.

Complexity is not a limit

While financial actors are hindered by the complexity of their processes, regulators are providing constant updates to regulatory regimes such as UCITS and AIMFD. Our experience working with our clients revealed that multiple Excel-based spreadsheets and disparate systems have a cost for business. It escalates overtime and drives down efficiency and performance.

At Fortia, we are using cutting-edge technologies that will transform the way you manage your data and regulatory compliance. We pair technical skills from highly skilled data scientists with the financial expertise and knowledge gained from the clients. Our state-of-the-art AI solutions are empowering clients for costs reduction and business excellence.

Today, we are continuously developing our solutions using Artificial Intelligence to ensure compliance and competitiveness for our clients. By addressing complex issues of leading banks, we have helped them shape new processes, and most importantly they will not fall behind regulations. We make sure clients take all the challenges with the right solutions.
