Combining Business Intelligence
and Risk Consulting

for corporates, governments and private clients




What we do.

S-RM provides business intelligence, risk management and cyber-security services globally.

Combined with our technology solutions, we enable clients to identify and mitigate risks ranging from money laundering, fraud and corruption to security, political change and cybercrime. With a focus on quality, responsiveness and regulatory requirements, we work closely with businesses, private clients, and governments to protect their assets, people, reputation, information and brand.

Who we are.

S-RM has a highly experienced management team with deep knowledge of the business intelligence and risk consulting industries. Our employees have a diverse set of professional backgrounds, including academia, military, intelligence, strategic consultancy, journalism, and finance.

How we are different.

We provide customised services to clients within industries where generic solutions are too common. Our vision is to be the best business intelligence and risk management business, recognised for quality, agility and innovation in our services and our people.

S-RM to establish a Kidnap Response team

S-RM are pleased to announce that we will be providing kidnap response services to XL Catlin’s Kidnap & Response policy holders. Neil Young has been appointed to build the response team which will be in a position to exclusively respond for XL Catlin K&R policyholders from the 1st January 2017.

As you know, K&R response services have never been more relevant. In a changing world, new risks and old can only be met with a combination of intelligence-led insight, hard-earned experience, and fast access and response. 

S-RM have been providing crisis management services and the Global Security Insight website to XL Catlin clients for many years. Their clients already welcome our approach to risk consulting – putting intelligence first to identify, understand and mitigate risks effectively.

Extending our successful partnership to response consultancy will give their clients fully-integrated, streamlined access to intelligence and response consulting, whenever and wherever they need it. S-RM will provide this response through our offices in London, New York, Hong Kong, Geneva, Cape Town, Rio, Dubai, Tripoli, Karachi, Accra and Tokyo. 

Neil is a former Army officer, cutting his teeth on his first kidnap negotiation in 1986. He then founded Neil Young Associates, which went on to become one of the world’s leading specialist kidnap and extortion consultancies. He brings over 30 years’ experience to building our K&R response team.

Work on the new team, which we will be building up to 20 strong, is well underway and the K&R response consultancy services from S-RM will be provided from 1 January 2017. Please see our careers page for more information.
