Financial data is 'just another data source' and Financial Intelligence or FININT could provide new leads, selectors and geo-location on any target from a search of their name, address, phone no (mob, landline, business), IMSI, email address, business name, as well as bank account or credit/debit card number. GCHQ retain bulk banking data from financial institutions in the Middle East, Pakistan, Zimbabwe and Kenya, and bulk credit card transaction data. Stored on AAS EXPERIMENT and a number of biographical FININT datasets are available to query in LUCKY STRIKE. Other FININT datasets that cannot for legal and policy reasons be made available in LUCKY STRIKE will be included in a new Finance/Travel tool in development: Lucky escape (restricted access). Please contact , or GCHQ Travel & Finance Data Senior User for further details and/or to request access. The details required for a FININT check are outlined in the FININT Tasking template, see also
FININT Legalities.  LUCKY STRIKE and LUCKY ESCAPE LUCKY STRIKE CT FININT are working with the Finance/Travel Senior User and OPPLEG to make bulk selectors derived from financial datasets available via LUCKY STRIKE and access permitted to all LUCKY STRIKE users. LUCKY STRIKE is an analyst tool which enables a target identifier to be searched against many collateral datasets, with the aim of enriching the ‘seed’ selector and providing context and additional information. LUCKY STRIKE currently holds over a billion records across 40+ unique datasets, ranging from GSM subscriber details to FININT data. Lucky escape LUCKY ESCAPE enables analysts to quickly run unselected TDI's (e.g. MSISDN, email, passport) against a multitude of travel and financial datasets, with a view to answering the simple questions 'has my target travelled anywhere?', 'has my target a bank account, credit card and/or have they made any financial transactions?'. The Senior User is GCHQ Travel & Finance Data Senior User . The datasets which sit behind LUCKY ESCAPE are linked together by field types. This enables very powerful, and very fast, data fusion.
