Executive, Close and VIP Protection Services


We understand that International Executives, Development Staff and VIP’s face increasingly complex security concerns, and so offer a bespoke service accordingly.

All our Close Protection Officers are former members of UK Special Forces, are licensed, and meet Security Industry Authority (SIA) criteria. They can be deployed individually or as part of a team. Their expertise includes travel management, logistical planning, crisis management, emergency coordination – and perhaps most importantly, discretion.

Our teams, who regularly operate in high-threat or complex environments, are customised to each client’s individual requirements with consideration given to the complete operating environment, the very latest threat and the host state security profile. We have some of the most experienced Tier One operational consultants within the Private Security community, with extensive backgrounds military or tactical Police backgrounds.

We offer a complete range of protective services and understand the complexity of working in challenging environments. In particular, we specialise in identifying and mitigating risk while helping clients to protect their families, reputation, physical property and financial value. Our universal service includes but is not limited to: 

Executive Protection

Our operatives provide discreet, immediate close protection and continually advise our clients on local and regional security issues. 

Protective Surveillance

This low-profile approach is used to protect clients who wish to maintain their individual profile while being safe in the knowledge that a responsive security team is close at hand should an unplanned situation arise. 

Security Driver

The addition of a security driver ensures that our clients are transported by a vetted and emergency trained driver. This service can be further enhanced by the use of an escort vehicle and additional close protection operatives should an elevated security profile be required. 

Counter Surveillance

On occasion, more complex situations can arise. Intelligence or information may be obtained to suggest that our client is under observation. In this scenario, we can complement and support existing protective measures with the use of a counter-surveillance team who will observe and identify third party interest. The ultimate aim of this service is to identify those involved while providing covert intervention measures designed to deter, delay or deny any further surveillance.

We enhance the security of those under our protection by providing:

  • Rapid worldwide deployment,
  • 24/7 threat analysis for advance preparations and planning
  • Real-time intelligence
  • Medically qualified specialists
  • Fully global hostage working group
