There are private equity firms. There are family offices. And then there’s RAF.
Our mission is unlike the others. We grow great businesses by investing in best-of-breed owners and their people. Development is our focus – not buying and selling, but building.
We strive to keep former owners actively involved, offering incentives to entice their entrepreneurial spirit. Leveraging our outstanding resources and strategic planning, we enhance operations in a truly cooperative manner, allowing each company to achieve excellence.
We’re RAF. And we’re a different kind of equity.
