Blackstone Consultancy, the London-based security and intelligence consultancy, has been featured in the 2019 Spear’s 500 listing of ‘Top Recommended’ organisations. Billed as the ‘indispensable’ guide to the top private client advisors, wealth managers, lawyers and service providers for high net worth individuals, the annual Spear’s 500 is held in high regard internationally. The 2019 edition was launched earlier this month at the Spear’s Wealth Management Awards Ceremony at The Dorchester in central London. This is the third year running that Blackstone Consultancy has been featured.
Blackstone Consultancy provides individuals and companies with “bespoke, discreet and exceptionally vigilant” security arrangements. Managing director Simon Giddins is used to addressing and advising upon the most complex of client needs and security situations and, as a consequence, has been recognised – alongside his trusted team of specialists – as one of the foremost security and intelligence providers for private clients.
The firm’s clients are located throughout the UK and as far afield as Moscow, Los Angeles, Cape Town and Doha. Its team of private security and intelligence specialists operates worldwide from capital cities to some of the world’s most notorious trouble spots.
Giddins commented: “Blackstone Consultancy is involved in challenging and evolving risks, both domestically and internationally, highly private investigations, personal protection and assessing risk for some of the most iconic private properties and commercial assets across Europe. It’s important to account for all potential risks from geopolitics through to crime and terrorism and on again to cyber threats in order to enable, advise and mitigate threats to our clients.”
He continued: “It’s also important to us that our services are personal and reassuring, and that measures are also taken to ensure they are unobtrusive and inconspicuous. We have many years of military and law enforcement experience. Members of the team have worked at the highest levels of the intelligence community and in the private security industry. We’re pleased to once again be recognised by Spear’s as a leading player within the security sector.”
Commenting on this year’s inclusion of Blackstone Consultancy, Alec Marsh (Editor of Spear’s) said: “As the indispensable private client bible, it’s essential that the Spear’s 500 touches on security which is an issue of rising importance for our readers. With that in mind, it’s a privilege to include Blackstone Consultancy. It’s a business that continues to impress us.”
