The Cots World Group: About Us

Company Overview


The Cotswold Group was established in 1990 and directly employs over 250 staff across offices in the UK.


With 25 years of experience we are the UK and Europe’s leading Investigation Company providing exceptional results through our specialist investigation and intelligence services.


In April 2011 the company was acquired by G4S plc as G4S Investigation Solutions (UK) Ltd but we continue to trade as The Cotswold Group. The acquisition provided us with additional expertise and a global reach.


We specialise in intelligence led fraud and liability investigations across the public and private sector, working for a range of industries, including some of the world's largest insurance companies, corporate businesses and local authorities.


We have complete nationwide coverage across all functions of our operation, enabling us to respond quickly to customer requirements 365 days a year.


Prospect, our market leading intelligence database, contains over 1.2 million fraud specific entities associated with all general insurance claim types including motor, property, liability and travel. Through working for 8 of the top 10 UK general insurers we are uniquely placed to provide clients with a truly market leading proposition based on our industry knowledge and experience.


Instructions can be managed via our online portal where we provide our customers with instant access to files, documents and reports throughout our investigations.
