About

We specialise in risk, intelligence and technology and proudly serve the banking, legal and insurance sectors.

Our Story

At Albany we are all about pioneering, revolutionising and a belief that everything can be achieved with the right team, a little thought and a clear understanding.

To put it simply we listen to you and respond.

We have a wealth of resources and support that we draw upon for each individual case. We are aware that time is a valuable thing to every organisation so we invest our time into ensuring that we identify, prioritise and deliver to each client what we say when we say we will.

Albany will always strive to be adaptable and flexible in the way we work to meet the needs of our clients as we know that you are all different and what is right for some is not for others. This approach and our dedicated in-house teams makes us feel confident we are able to accommodate any request.

Our Principles

Integrity

We always provide independent and objective advice. Our autonomy is our greatest strength and we will provide what we believe is the best for our client without compromise.

Professionalism

We always recruit the very best consultants and practitioners available and provide our clients with the most reliable and professional of services. Our delivery will be the most professional and expedient. We can work autonomously, with confidence and to maximum capacity, anywhere, at any time.

Discretion

We will always respect our client’s position and operate with the utmost client confidentiality. Confidentiality is at the core of our business and ensures we provide the highest standards of service. Integrity and honesty are at the heart of business.

The Unrelenting Pursuit of Excellence. We want to be better every time. “Good” is probably not good enough for us.

Creativity

We stress creativity and imagination in everything we do. While recognising that the old way may still be the best way, we constantly strive to find a better solution through lateral thought to a client’s problems.

Our Ethics

We pride ourselves on providing impartial information and advice that is independent of any political or commercial pressures. We routinely handle sensitive information, whilst preserving the highest level of confidentiality. We comply with all national laws relating to privacy and the collection and dissemination of data and personal information. Our ethos is to ensure that our clients comply with anti-corruption laws, not break them.

We believe in a principled business that operates to the highest ethical and legal standards. Our operatives and analysts are provided with training and required to fully observe the law in each jurisdiction in which they operate. Albany does not provide security services to any governments or retain government officials that may compromise our independence or present a corruption risk. Our reports are overseen by our in-house legal team and when required a lawyer from the appropriate jurisdiction.
