Henderson Risk Limited (HRL) was formed in 2002 as a central company (and brand) owning and controlling all the Henderson activities worldwide, and to provide crisis response services to the Lloyd’s of London insurance market. It initially consisted of Henderson Asset Protection LLC (formed 1998), DBA Henderson Ltd (formed in 2001), and IMAT Defence Ltd (2002).
History (1998 - 2002)
In 1998 Henderson Asset Protection LLC (HAP) was formed in Kosovo to provide Asset Protection (armed cash in transit and manned guarding) services to the UN, Financial Institutions and NGOs. HAP is the largest asset protection company in Kosovo.
In 2001 DBA Henderson Ltd was established to provide consultancy services to companies wanting to develop business in emerging markets. This business has been absorbed into HRL’s consultancy and business intelligence services.
In 2002 IMAT Defence Ltd (IMAT) was created to provide outsourced military training, consultancy and support services to Governments in emerging markets. These activities have been absorbed into HRL’s training capabilities. In 2002 HRL’s main activity was response to kidnap for ransom, being retained by underwriters in the Lloyd's of London insurance market to provide crisis management for their clients. This capability is now part of the services provided under Crisis Management.
Since 2002 HRL has continued to grow consistently year on year. We have operations in over 10 countries. In 2010 we rationalised our operations and implemented a Quality Management System (QMS) to streamline and increase the quality of our services.
