Asset Protection

Security Services, Special Projects, Capacity Building

We have been delivering  physical security solutions since 2000.

Our Asset Protection business was started in post conflict Kosovo in support of the United Nations mission. Today our footprint has expanded to include several African countries.

Our clients are varied but include embassies, mining companies, banks and infrastructure projects.

We can assist with the design of security solutions during the feasibility study phase of projects and our reporting is often included in bankable studies.

We are experienced in the delivery of both the review and writing of security and contingency planning for regional and remote projects.

In areas where there are no credible security service providers we can establish operations to support the needs of the project.  We also provide experienced and qualified advisors to bring knowledge and support to larger operations where existing ‘ in house’ capabilities need extra help.

We have developed considerable experience of the extractive sector and skills in the area of loss control and support of social licence to operate that can add real value to projects.
