AYLIEN Parsa Ghaffari and David Dalton Deloitte Financial Services Innovation Awards

AYLIEN win Deloitte FSI Awards

Artificial Intelligence Company Named Overall Winner and Winner of Most Disruptive Fintech category at Deloitte's FSI Awards

AYLIEN, the Dublin-based artificial intelligence company, has been announced as the overall winner of the Deloitte Financial Services Innovation Awards, and also winner of  the Most Disruptive Fintech category.


The company's RADAR product is an AI-powered risk identification and monitoring platform that transforms how risk teams discover and investigate known and unknown risks. RADAR uses AI to aggregate and understand vast quantities of unstructured data such as news, regulatory updates, company filings, and internal data sources providing early signals of critical risk events related to a company's customers, supply chains, competition, and investment strategies.


Now in its second year, the Deloitte Financial Services Innovation Awards, supported by Banking & Payments Federation Ireland (BPFI) and Financial Services Ireland (FSI), recognise both individuals and companies that are leading the way in innovation with the use of technology to address challenges, create opportunities, improve user experience and change the way business is done.




Speaking at the virtual awards, David Dalton, Head of Financial Services at Deloitte Ireland, said: “Innovation in financial services has never been more important. The companies shortlisted and awarded today are great examples of the innovation that is happening in the sector all over Ireland, while many businesses still count the cost of the COVID-19 pandemic.

If businesses can take away one learning from the last year, it is that digital adoption is no longer an optional extra – it must become a core principle of all business’ offerings as we emerge into a post-pandemic Ireland. Financial services companies are at the heart of this change and today’s awards is about celebrating their continued innovation through the most challenging of circumstances.”


Ken Moore, Chief Innovation Officer at Mastercard, was also recognised individually with the Leadership Award. Ken is responsible for leading Mastercard’s R&D initiatives globally and for building many of the products that have helped Mastercard transform from a card payments company to a diverse technology company with businesses from multi-rail payments to identity, cyber security, data and many others. Mastercard’s global R&D is now headquartered out of Ireland.

Throughout his career, Ken has been a pioneer for innovation within the industry and has consistently demonstrated his ability to originate and commercialise new products and services.


The judging panel, comprising Brian Hayes, CEO, BPFI; Furio Pietribiasi, Chairman, FSI and CEO, Mediolanum International Funds Limited; Carol Gibbons, Head of ICT & International Services, Enterprise Ireland; Ciaran Hancock, Business Editor, The Irish Times and Gulru Atak, Head of Innovation, Citi and David Dalton, Head of Financial Services, Deloitte, chose the following winners:
