Privacy Policy

Last updated: 24 May, 2018

ASKET Ltd (with its registered office at 86 – 90 Paul Street, London, EC2A 4NET).


ASKET Ltd was established in 2013 to work with and for the shipping industry. Our vision was to set up an independent brokerage and be able to support a shipping industry being hammered by high costs of time, insurance and armed guards.


The ASKET team help clients save significant amounts of money and time, by directly supporting CSO’s  and QHSE teams with the vetting, selection and monitoring of security services.


Our focus is on enhancing quality, compliance and efficiency in the Maritime Security space, through sharing high quality information and through the execution of a unique maritime security broking process. The more clients we support the more we are able to reinvest into our services and the more the industry will benefit.


ASKET is the leader in this field and we believe the only true independent broker working directly for the Shipping Industry. We work with some of the worlds largest Ship owning and Ship management companies and have been described as being ‘breath of fresh air’.
