HAWK:AI is a software platform aimed at monitoring of financial transactions in real-time, delivering next-generation Anti-Money-Laundering compliance.

Hawk AI develops and operates a cloud-based software solution for the automated detection of suspected cases of financial crime.

HAWK:AI was founded in 2018 by Tobias Schweiger and Wolfgang Berner. The company is headquartered in Munich, Bavaria, Germany.


Hawk AI's software uses a combination of traditional rules and artificial intelligence to detect suspicious behavior in real-time and presents such alerts to Financial Crime specialists for investigation. The solution drastically reduces false alarm rates, e.g., compared to legacy AML/CFT solutions.


Hawk AI’s solution forms a platform for information sharing and surveillance across multiple financial institutions, all while fully complying with data-protection legislation. HAWK:AI works with financial institutions and partners such as Ratepay, North American Bancard and Modularbank.


HAWK:AI has raised $10M in a Series A financing on Jun 23, 2021. The round was led by BlackFin Capital Partners, with participations from Picus Capital.
