Our values


We’re proud to offer a unique combination of solutions to our growing client base. This is what sets us apart.

We are a trusted partner who values long term relationships with our clients. As such, we will involve you in the planning phase and never sell you a service that we can not provide or that you don’t actually require.

We ensure that all of our security operatives are of the highest quality, set high personal standards and demonstrate self-discipline.

We respect the privacy and ongoing relationships with our clients, supporting them throughout the course of the engagement and beyond. We work as a team, always putting other’s needs before our own.

Primarily recruited with ex-Military backgrounds, all of our security operators are SIA licensed and trained well above the SIA minimum standards (CP Level 3).

Enhanced security vetting in compliance with BS7858 is also conducted for your peace of mind.

We strongly believe in giving something back to society and that is why we have decided to support a number of charities by donating a percentage of our profits. The charities chosen support current and former military personnel who have suffered either physically or mentally during their time in service.

In addition, the work undertaken by Veterans for Wildlife has a direct impact on the protection of endangered animals including the rhino and elephant.

What clients say?

I engaged Minden Risk Solutions whilst looking for close protection for a Hollywood actor who was working on one of our productions. We were provided a number of bespoke options to meet our requirements and the team were thoroughly professional and accommodating. I will definitely be using them again in the future.
