Its C.
Between is used for 2 things and among is used for more than 2.
A and B are out because of the use of 'between'
D and E are unnecessarily wordy.

Agree with the usage of Between & Among but for a 'Group' will among be used?

C seems better if it is 'among investors' and not 'among group of investors'

Can someone please explain

Hi Phonenix72

My opinion,

The intended meaning is that the information is meant to stay ONLY among a small group of investors, NOT a large group of investors.
If we say: "among a small group of investors", we mean investors in general. The meaning is ambiguous. ==> The information is meant to stay among a small group or a large group of investors? we don't know. Because an adjective "small" modifies "a group" (Not investors), so we can't delete "a group".

Regards.
