Daiwa Capital Markets Europe has reappointed Axis Security and its front of house business Acuity to provide manned guarding and reception services at the investment bank’s head office in London.
Daiwa Capital Markets Europe is the wholly-owned investment banking subsidiary of Daiwa Securities Group Inc. with its head office at 5 King William Street in the heart of London’s financial district.
The contracts for manned guarding and reception services were re-tendered as part of a regular review of capabilities and benchmarking costs and services.
Part of the retender saw the security team undergo cross-site training with officers visiting other Axis Security sites such as the Scalpel and Sea Containers House.
A team of seven officers protect the property 24-hours a day, and a two-person reception team look after the front of house during working hours. Acuity has also trained eight additional receptionists specifically for the site so that any absences can be covered and additional support given at busy times.
David Mundell, Managing Director of Axis Security says his team are very experienced, and motivated to ensure that Daiwa’s high standards are maintained. “We have two specialist management teams supporting their respective services and ensuring our staff are happy and well supported,” he explains. “We are pleased to continue working with Daiwa, further improving our service and delivering the same high-levels of support they have come to expect.”
Axis Security and Acuity have been working with Daiwa since 2015.
