Hunter Protection offers protection for high value assets such as jewellery (c) Engin Akyurt

There is a fascinating, silent network of private trade that operates at a global level, moving luxury goods around the world more frequently and discretely than one might imagine. Artefacts, jewellery, documents, bloodstock and supercars are just some of the high-value assets that pass through the hands of this small yet widespread network, which, unless one knows the ropes, can fail without support to keep these assets safe.

However, established companies such as Hunter Protection offer services to monitor the movement of the high-value assets belonging to ultra-high net worth individuals with absolute security. Operating at the very highest echelons and with the utmost discretion and client confidentiality, Hunter Protection has provided protection services of this kind to senior members of The Royal Family, Presidents, Prime Ministers, Heads of State, Politicians, Foreign dignitaries, Senior Military Officers, Civilian Specialists, CEOs, corporations, celebrities and the media. 

Hunter Protection’s highly trained and individually selected elite Close Protection and Intelligence Field Operatives have extensive experience in asset movement and protection, providing their clients with exhaustive logistical planning for a range of assets from entire collections of supercars to priceless pieces of jewellery. One of many notable assignments undertaken and executed Hunter Protection of this kind was the protection and movement for items of the Royal Family Crown Jewels. Another was the covert implementation of US$50 million of new currency into an international series of outposts belonging to a well-known bank. 

Delivering this service and executing these assignments, Hunter Protection can operate internationally either overtly in conjunction with local police and security services or covertly, discretely enabling the valuable items or currencies to arrive securely at their destination with minimum disruption.  

To ensure the discretion of each operation as necessary, the Hunter Protection team keep incredibly low profiles. It is only the company’s Founder, Karen Connell, who is known to the public as a member of the Hunter Protection team. An expert in communication and team building, Connell works personally with Hunter Protection’s operatives, training them to build effective and professional relationships quickly to ensure clients are catered for in every aspect, from personal reassurance to the execution of their assignments. 

It is Connell herself that vets and hires the ex-British military (special forces) operatives, training them to the expected level of Hunter Protection security capabilities. Their best-in-class British military standards, combined with Hunter Protection’s smart technology offering, ensure the safety of their clients’ assets while they’re on the move. +44 203 475 9947
