What we do

FNA is a deep technology firm specializing in advanced network analytics and simulations.

The company was founded in 2014 with a mission to make the financial system safer and more efficient.

The financial crisis revealed the hidden interconnectedness of the financial system and led to a €20 trillion loss for the world economy.
The 2020 pandemic then revealed the interconnectedness and delicate nature of our supply chains and trade networks.

Other sectors including defense and insurance have all suffered as a result of not understanding key connections and correlations within their networks. When it mattered most, decision-makers were not able to respond effectively because they did not understand these interconnections.

This is what we are solving at FNA.

Our technology models complex networks & optimises financial systems by:


operationalizing advanced network analytics and simulation models

delivering proprietary machine learning and AI methodologies

deploying some of the best minds in the financial industry

Our expertise enables the world’s largest banks, central banks, regulators, payment systems, and national security organizations to make critical decisions by transforming their data into actionable insights.

Our story

FNA was founded in 2014, but our team has been at the forefront of shaping advanced network analytics since long before its inception.
