As mentioned, our close security protection agents come from various professional backgrounds, including law enforcement, Special Forces, Army, and other VIP close protection companies. It is the duty and responsibility of every close protection operative to protect clients from harassment, harmful situations, and physical attacks. Appointing close protection VIP security affords the utmost sense of private protection for you if you get placed in a position of vulnerability.
One thing to remember when appointing the services of close protection agencies is the close protection agent availability. At ASA, we can provide you with a close protection specialist and complete security teams 24 hours a day. Unfortunately, individuals and groups that may wish to disrupt or harm VIPs don’t take days off, so nor do our close protection consultants or agents. We work around the clock to protect our clients from the threat of harm and disruption, which positions ASA among the elite close protection service providers.
ASA has been steadily expanding as a close protection agency since being established by our Founder and Chairman, Simon Wagstaff BEM MIExpE, in 1999. Having served in the British Army for 20 years as a Senior Bomb Disposal Officer with Commando Forces, Simon has lived in Asia since 1989 and founded The ASA Group in Manila. From our infancy in the Philippines, ASA has gone from strength to strength and built a global network of offices, close protection, international operatives, and vendors.
Since our initial corporate close protection office base in Manila, we now have ASA-staffed offices in Hong Kong, Singapore, Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, the Philippines, and UK. We have built up a trusted partnership with many former colleagues to form a global network of executive close protection consultants and agents who have helped to conduct close security protection operations in almost every country worldwide and position us as one of the region’s top close protection firms.

ASA close protection agents are trained to an exceptionally high degree.

We’ve spent more than 20 years providing corporate, close protection, and close protection personal security for a whole spectrum of clients. We’ve worked for and continue to work with members of five royal families to provide them with close protection security services. They can go about their daily business or travel internationally with private close protection, ensuring their safety. We also provide close protection security services to Hollywood stars at red carpet events and premiers, musicians, governmental figures, and politicians, and we have HNW individuals that can also require a close protection operative.

Whether a client requires a single close protection operative or a team of close protection agency to travel to multiple international destinations, ASA Group can provide a close protection service unrivaled by any other VIP close protection companies.
The senior management at ASA have backgrounds that include British Army Commando Forces Bomb Disposal, the British Royal Marines, and multi-service multi-national multi-million grossing security companies. As one of the leading close protection firms in the industry, we complete due diligence on each and every close protection officer before working with them. In many cases, a close protection agent will be an ex-colleague, and all come from serving in the armed forces, military, law enforcement, or other top close protection companies.
A private security provider, close protection operation, can often require an officer to be armed on duty. An armed close protection officer will be deployed if necessary for the operation. Although they are permitted to carry firearms, certain counties don’t allow this, so it is down to the local authorities.
The cost of a private security specialist service will depend on many variables. Is it just one close protection operative for a one-day escorting service, or is a team of armed close protection officers required for a week of international travel? On the lower end, you could look at $500 per day and then scale up for more extensive and extended operations.
We believe we supersede other VIP close protection companies due to each ASA team member’s expertise in our operation. From company Founder & Director Simon Wagstaff to the in-house operations staff at our seven international office destinations to our incredible close protection consultants, everyone is at the top of their game and ready to provide the best close protection security services to ensure our client’s safety and wellbeing.
