We deal with a world where threats are constantly changing. Concentric is a risk management firm that provides security services and intelligence solutions to keep people safe worldwide, specializing in HNW Family Offices, Corporate, and Non-Profit holistic security solutions. In 2021, we founded our 501(c) 188 Foundation to support individuals left vulnerable because in times of crisis, personal security can become a privilege, instead of a right.

RESCUING ONE, IMPACTS MANY

The Foundation sits within a unique trifurcation of capability, access, and need. Due to our unique position, we believe it’s our moral responsibility and honor to assist those who need it most. Rescuing just one person creates perpetual ripples, affecting many. We inherently know that effort will always be worth it.
