RVC invests in all industries and sectors across small to mid-sized companies, which typically exhibit any of the following attributes:
Before making an investment, RVC thoroughly evaluates the business dynamics of the industry in which the target company operates. This evaluation places particular emphasis on the competitive position of the company, future market opportunities, and unique product or service offerings. We also believe in an alignment of interests between our co-shareholders, the Board of Directors and management as being a prerequisite for long term sustainable growth.
Our geographical focus is on African companies with particular emphasis on Southern Africa. Our investments originate from a variety of sources, including private market transactions, secondary referrals or corporate restructuring projects.
In our buy and build transactions, we invest in smaller companies that have scalable platforms and backable management teams, which operate in large fragmented industries where we believe there are substantial revenue and margin benefits from sector consolidation.
We make both capital and non-capital equity investments where our capital and operating experience can act as catalyst for substantial revenue and enterprise value growth.
We make investments in early and later phase development projects, either on a majority or minority control basis.
Our mid-size equity investments are with local or cross-boarder companies where we contribute to drive growth or operational improvements.
