Verisure is a world leader in monitored security solutions, shaping the global Personal Security space.
Entrepreneurial and pioneering spirit
The business has enjoyed consistent double-digit top and bottom line growth over the past 20 years as a result of its highly entrepreneurial and innovative approach to business.
For example, Verisure was the first company in the industry to introduce voice-based SMS / GSM transmission, the first to use two way voice (enabling a direct conversation with the consumer via the control panel), the first to add image verification (to assist in assessing risk and in dramatically reducing false alarms) and the first to enable home control via a mobile application.
This kind of innovation has led to Verisure enjoying industry leading customer retention.
Verisure takes responsibility for the whole value chain - from product development, design and sales to installation, service and 24 / 7 professional monitoring, verification and response - to ensure it can bring peace of mind to its customers.
This product development model enables us to innovate where others cannot.
Verisure invests over half of the EBITDA from its customer portfolio in growth every year, and has been growing non-stop, in every one of its geographies, throughout the financial crisis.
This is partially the result of very low penetration rates of monitored alarm services in Europe and Latin America (our geographies are still about 3 times less penetrated than the US), providing significant opportunity for continued growth.
Verisure also continues to expand internationally and has opened offices in Peru, Italy, the UK, Germany and Argentina in just the last few years.
Our successful growth has been and will continue being dependent on Verisure Talents. Our People are our business.
Verisure is majority-owned by leading private equity firm Hellman & Friedman and management. Our sponsors have invested heavily in accelerating the company’s innovation pipeline, doubling R&D spend and are now focusing on adding the talent required for Verisure to continue to accelerate growth.
Following years of growth in this industry supported by strong dynamics, the company has now embarked on a transformation under a new high calibre leadership team in order to position itself for the next phase of growth and as the leader in the market.
