The investments and strategies discussed throughout the Site may not be suitable for all investors and are not obligations of or guaranteed by CIVC or any of its affiliates. Nothing on the Site is to be construed as a solicitation to offer investment advice or services.

Testimonials of partners/portfolio company executives are provided to demonstrate the benefits of working with the CIVC team. They are not provided to solicit investors in a CIVC fund. Some partners/executives featured in the testimonials have an interest in a CIVC fund; such partner’s/executive’s testimonial is not offered on the basis of being an investor in a CIVC fund but rather as a partner/executive who works with the CIVC team.
Portfolio companies described in this Site and testimonial videos do not purport to represent all portfolio company investments made by CIVC. Not all of our portfolio investments had the characteristics, prospects, or projected successes highlighted. Past results are not indicative, nor a guarantee, of future results, which may vary.
Neither CIVC nor the funds it manages are considered to be ESG-focused. Notwithstanding the foregoing, as determined appropriate and in its sole discretion, CIVC takes certain ESG-considerations into account in the selection, management and investment decisions related to portfolio investments; however, the type of considerations and the weight given to such considerations may vary from investment to investment and remains subject to CIVC’s discretion, fund investment objectives/constraints and any underlying fiduciary duties. Any discussion of ESG issues or results contained on this website is subject to the foregoing limitations.

The Site identifies a number of benefits inherent in CIVC’s services and operations, although CIVC is also subject to a number of material risks associated with these benefits, as further identified in each CIVC fund’s definitive documents. Although CIVC believes that it and its personnel will have competitive advantages in identifying, diligencing, monitoring, consulting, improving and/or ultimately selling investments on behalf of its funds, there can be no guarantee that CIVC will be able to maintain such advantages over time, outperform third parties or the financial markets generally, or avoid losses. For additional information regarding risks and potential conflicts of interest regarding an investment in CIVC funds, please see the risk factors in such fund’s private placement memorandum.
