About Global Investigations

The HQ of Global Investigations is located in Kingston, Greater London. After starting out as a small UK based company in 1994, we have since grown into world-renowned Extraordinary, Tenacious & Unwavering investigative agency.

We are though a very welcoming bunch and will always welcome a personal visit from you. However, we are aware a lot of people can get nervous when speaking with a private investigator and the initial call can, at times, be a very big, scary decision. Please be assured we understand the sensitivity and privacy attached to such issues and that we will always offer a friendly, reassuring and sympathetic ear.

Every member of our team knows how important it is to listen and as such we never rush a call and always allow you to determine the pace of the conversation. Once you have explained your exact issue and your requirements, we will take you through a clear explanation of our services and will work with you to establish the best way forward.

Tracing and International Investigations

We are extremely well-regarded in the industry for our expertise in resolving international cases that other agencies simply do not have the resources for. We find that we consistently deliver on our promises, where others fail to, as they simply cannot achieve the same results as us.

Our name, Global Investigations intimates that we have a global presence, and we do. Over the years we have built up an impressively solid reputation within the industry, in every single country we operate in, from the UK and Europe to the Americas, Asia and the Middle East.

This international presence enables us to offer you far more than any other local competitor and makes our job of cross border tracing a whole lot easier. Our overseas success rates easily match our UK achievements and we are proud to have developed extremely professional, amicable relationships with other agents in numerous cities across the world.

As one of the leaders in our field, we know how important it is to maintain a reputation, which is why we commit to maintaining yours in each and every case we take on. All of the work we undertake is regulated by our own strict code of ethics, principles and morals and we believe our success rate continues to grow directly because of this. We absolutely pride ourselves on our ethical tracing and investigative methodology, which bring us in line with all the regulations stated by the Data Protection Act (DPA).

Our Security

We pride ourselves on our sheer focus to stick to the incredibly high levels of security we have had in place from the very beginning. We are currently fully operational on Pretty Good Privacy (PGP) email encryption. This enables our clients to pass work securely through our emailing system and ensures only those with the appropriate encryption keys are able to access the information.

All paperwork is securely locked away behind key-coded entry doors inside lockable filing systems and is adequately disposed of once the scheduled DPA dates have passed, provided the documents are no longer required. Our head office is also fully alarmed with sensors on all floors. Activation of these sensors will send a signal to the police who will issue an immediate response.

Our Insurances

We have full professional liability and indemnity insurance cover. We also have fail-safe disaster recovery plans in place, which means you can be assured your information, data and research are absolutely safe in our hands.

In terms of how we work; upon receipt of your instructions we will assign one of our handpicked, expert investigators to take on your enquiry and they will see it right through to its conclusion. They will also be supported by our experienced, friendly and fully-staffed customer service team. This enables us to ensure we always respond to your enquiries efficiently, swiftly and with the upmost professionalism.
