C5's investment strategy is to support private businesses that are developing novel and innovative solutions to problems faced by companies, governments and citizens as a result of a growing range of complex and sophisticated threats.
The global security sector plays a critical role in the modern world. The role of SMEs able to provide innovative products and solutions is becoming ever more prominent against a backdrop of reducing R&D budgets in governments and larger corporates. Private equity investment in the sector grew significantly in 2011 and is projected to experience sustained growth.
By focusing our investment on niche sectors that mitigate risk and protect assets and lives — such as cyber security, biometrics, detection and communications — C5 will be at the forefront of global trends and developments.
