Your Future Protected
We Do Things Differently
Kayo Digital Ltd (formerly MoCo Software Solutions) and Digital Security Concepts Inc. (“TourTrax“) have been helping corporate customers to prove that they are diligent about carrying out compliance and maintenance tasks for a combined total of over 35 years. TourTraxUK is an amalgamation of both companies’ industry knowledge and technological expertise, and we believe that this has produced the most cost-effective and simplest solution available to prove presence and activity for small and medium-sized hospitality businesses.
It is so effective because TourTraxUK’s innovative use of mobile, cloud, NFC and RFID technologies makes it virtually impossible for employers to overlook scheduled and reactive tasks and activities, and for employees to avoid their obligation to carry said tasks out. First time, on time, every time.
This means that TourTraxUK customers can PROVE to underwriters that they are serious about undertaking positive and proactive risk management. So TourTraxUK customers pose less of a risk and make less insurance claims than their competitors.
As such, Clarke Williams is always prepared to offer a MINIMUM 5% discount over any TourTraxUK customer’s existing property and liability insurance (like-for-like) cover.
We are delighted to have partnered with Hawksworth Valuations, allowing our High Net Worth customers access to a bespoke Jewellery valuation service.
Steven Jordan is the Managing Director of Hawksworth Valuations and is one of the most experienced specialists in the world of jewellery valuations.
He is one of UK’s most experienced and qualified jewellery, silver and watches valuers, with over 40 years associated experience. His skills are constantly in demand by private clients, jewellers, and the insurance industry.
After twenty years in the jewellery sector, in managerial and valuer roles, Steven set up an independent consultancy business in 1993 based in Cambridge.

Interview with Steven Jordan of Hawksworth Valuations
Q. What inspired you to get into the field of valuations?
I had an interest in horology and gemmology from an early age. Valuations gave me a platform in which I could utilise my passion for these subjects and interest in jewellery history. However, if you were to ask who inspired me directly then I would say it would be the late David Wilkins. David was a keen valuer and founder of The Institute of Registered Valuers. In 2009 I was honoured to receive The Institute of Registered Valuers David Wilkins Award for ‘outstanding skill, dedication and service in respect of jewellery appraisal and valuation’.
Q. What does your firm offer specifically for customers?
Hawksworth Valuations limited offer a confidential home or place of work visiting service. This ensures that there is no risk of loss or damage to valuable and sentimental items in transit.
Q. How do you set your business apart from others?
In addition to the visiting service there is the opportunity to take part in one-to-one valuation events. This is certainly appropriate for clients that have only a couple of items that require detail valuations and where a visit would not be viable. The other important aspect is that the fees are transparent. No percentage of value fees.
Q. What has been the most interesting item you have had to value?
Adherence to a strict confidentiality policy precludes me from divulging specific details. However I can say that I am privileged to have carried out valuations on items that once belonged to key historical figures such as Nelson, Napoleon and Washington. These item type valuations present their own challenges. I have permission to declare that I carried out the appraisal of these items for a museum. As I have for the trophy collections of The Royal Navy, The Royal Thames Yacht Club and Henley Royal Regatta.
We have partnered with JKS Fleet and Prestige to provide our clients with Finance Solutions, Vehicle Sourcing and Fleet Management options for both Commercial and High Net Worth individuals.
JKS Fleet originally started as Hawkins Cambridge in 2010. Our continued growth and thirst for independence gave rise to our incorporation as JKS Fleet (a trading name of JKS Partnership Ltd).
Despite this change, the Captain of the ship, Christian Jackson-Kew has maintained true to his initial vision of creating a Vehicle Finance Broker which is completely independent, 100% trust-worthy with unparalleled levels of professionalism and integrity.
With a Management degree and Post Grad qualifications in Corporate Law, Chris is not your normal Director in this industry and he does all possible to ensure JKS steers clear of the poor ‘motor industry reputation’ of pushy sales, dodgy deals and sharp practices.
Meeting with Chris you will find be is friendly and professional and will make sure he understands his clients needs as fully as possible to ensure they are met.
The team at JKS Fleet is hand picked to reflect the ethos of friendly professionalism and is highly knowledgeable firstly in the solutions JKS provides and secondly in the vehicles it supplies.
At Clarke Williams we strongly believe in supporting our local community and have been doing a lot of work with The Bridge Trust to help raise money and awareness for them via Dragon Boat Racing and participating in the Tonbridge Half Marathon – we hope to work with them closely in the future and help to get locals back on their feet.
The Bridge Trust are a small charity based in Tonbridge and Tunbridge Wells which provides quality accommodation with support for people in West Kent who are homeless.
Residents stay with them for up to two years. During that time they are assigned a Supported Housing Officer who will work with them on a one to one basis. Support is tailored for what each individual needs to regain their independence. Ill mental health, physical health, wellbeing, help with debt, money management, substance abuse, self-worth, benefits, employment, education and training to name just some problems that require support. The aim is to enable them to move on into a home of their own, and to prevent them from becoming homeless again.
A long term solution to homelessness – When the resident is ready to move on their SHO will help them to find a place to move into, and during the moving process. Once the resident has moved the charity provides them with a move on pack which includes essential items for their new home such as plates, cups, utensils, towels etc and some essential items of furniture. Their SHO will continue to support them for several months to help them settle into the change of lifestyle and environment.
‘The Bridge Trust hasn’t just put a roof over my head they have actually given me skills to progress. They are trying to make you so you’re not stuck in this situation again; they are a good charity’
