Close Protection

We can provide a bespoke executive close protection service for individuals, groups or families within the UK or globally. Vanguard Associates UK provides highly competent, high calibre, close protection operatives for your complete security whilst in the UK or abroad. Experienced in VIP security, executive protection and additional levels of close protection, our operatives maintain a professional approach and remain conscious of our clients’ public profiles at all times.

We draw on the expertise of former members of the special forces community combined with current threat and risk assessment pre-deployment of individual or team protection operatives.

Our operatives blend in with their surroundings to offer covert discreet security, or a more overt presence to suit the requirements of given situations being available for individuals, families and multi-national corporations.

Vanguard’s bespoke personal security services range from a single close protection operative to an entire security team or permanent on-site private security (Residential Security Team); Executive or VIP security for one-off events or for a long-term deployment.

Vanguard also provides a unique “chaperone” service for younger family members of high net worth individuals who may have a desire to travel. This service is designed to gently protect the subject and guide them away from the dangers that are all too available throughout the world.

All of these services can be tailored to your specific requirements, with our personal security advisers, assessing, identifying and managing risk in all cases for individuals, their families, corporations and assets.

Vanguard has the capability to provide maritime security cover for luxury private and commercial leased yachts and can undertake vetting procedures for prospective crew members.

Similarly, we are in a position to assist with the provision of security for commercial shipping including anti-piracy measures. For security reasons, we are not able to provide details here but will be delighted to discuss your requirements personally.
