Financial Services

Protecting everyone’s money.


ARK and Financial Customer

    The financial sector is a key market for ARK. Assisted Key Holding response and Open and Lock Services are utilised to good effect within this sector. All of our customers have differing reasons for requiring our key holding services. Financial bodies are heavily targeted by criminals.

    At ARK we strongly believe in safeguarding clients in all sectors and markets but especially the financial sector, we appreciate in this line of work it is not just money, it is your client’s money. ARK’s joined-up solutions, linking physical services to the monitoring of your intruder, panic, and CCTV systems for visual verification works extremely well in this sector.

    Whether you are an accountant office, a National bank, insurance firm, real estate or finance advisor, we are able to help protect your staff, office and assets.

      Alarm Response & Keyholding

      Another way in which we can help in responding to alarms, night or day with our Alarm Response & Keyholding service. ARK has been responding to out of hours alarm activations and securing sites on behalf of owners with fully licensed SIA security since 1982. Businesses without alarm systems are 4.5 times more likely to be burglarized. Having an alarm with 24/7 monitoring will help mitigate threats.

      Manned Guarding

      Additionally, ARK Manned guarding is also a popular service for retailers. Whether you have one or 100’s locations across the UK needing a manned presence, we can provide the security service you require. Some of our retail customers want this to be a 2 person visit due to the value of the stock on site.

      Staff Escort Service

      Staff Escort Service means that we can rendezvous with one of your staff members at a location away from the site and then arrive at your site in unison.
