What makes us different
To see the real value of a business, you need to look beyond the financial statements. Since our founding in 1979, we’ve taken the long view – acquiring and investing in solidly performing companies nationwide, led by owners with unique vision and strong ethics.
That’s the kind of company that provides the greatest opportunity for successful development over time.
We’re RAF. And we’re a different kind of equity.
