Veritas International




Who We Are

Veritas International was founded in 2004 by former serving members of the UK Special Forces. We provide bespoke risk consultancy and high level security services for individuals, governments, companies and corporations.

We also protect Superyachts and ships from piracy and terrorism and have expertise in travel management, logistical planning, crisis management and emergency coordination.

Clients choose us for our “fantastic communication, discretion, diligence and professionalism.” As an independent global risk consultancy we specialise in security risk management and political risk analysis supporting our client’s operations in hostile or complex environments.

Our specialist teams provide a diverse portfolio of training services, tailored to government, military and corporate clients, whilst preparing and installing the mechanisms for self-sustainability.

Our mission is to identify opportunity, assist in the development of capability, and improve functional resilience to counter the global challenges ahead.


Guided by our values

We endeavour to build a relationship of trust with our clients. A majority of our work is with clients we have supported for over a decade. We believe this is because our clients are assured that we put their interests ahead of our own.

  • We guard client confidences
  • We do not publicise our work for our clients
  • We express the truth as we see it
  • We will only accept an assignment if we believe we can create value for the client

Our offices are in Poole and Mayfair, but we work all over the world.

“I would like to inform you of the invaluable service which was provided by the Veritas team. They were excellent at alleviating any concerns and dispelling tension from potential threats. I have no hesitation in recommending Veritas International and look forward to working with you again in the near future.”

“On behalf of the owner and his guests, let me relay that they had an amazing trip and that the service they experienced from your team was instantly noticed and spoken about. They especially enjoyed the fact that they knew that there was a team on-board, yet they never heard them and hardly saw them.”

“On many occasions your team went above and beyond the call of duty, assisting other departments where manpower was needed. Your team’s professionalism, dedication and unsolicited collateral duties have made a positive impact on all of us here.”

“Due to non-availability of Veritas on a passage from Dubai to Suez, another company was employed. It was immediately apparent that they were not as well trained as the Veritas crew and didn’t have the professional manners.”

“Veritas have always provided well turned-out teams, who arrive fully prepared and ready to go with the shortest notice. Very thorough professional briefings, and they fit right into the natural rhythm of the yacht and crew.”

“At all times the team behaved in a professional and cordial manner. They talked us through and then ran several drills prior to reaching potential risk areas. I do not hold any reserve in recommending the company to fulfil your particular requirements.”

“I hereby attest that all services provided by Veritas were of an exceptional standard and that the professionalism and civility of the management and teams was apparent throughout. Their manner and actions put the crew at ease in what was for many crew members an anxious time.”

“We have now done about 13 crossings with Veritas International personnel and we are constantly using their services in our fleet. Veritas International is a professional outfit and I have no hesitation in recommending their service to any future employer.”
