We participate predominantly in management buy-outs and buy-ins, leveraged buy-outs and BEE transactions involving businesses with a value of between R100 million and R1 billion. We offer clients a key advantage through our status as an on-balance sheet private equity company, using our own funds for investment rather than third party funds. As a result, we do not have exit timing pressures and are able to invest for the longer term.


Founded in 1989 by Neil Page, Dick Merks and Dave Rissik, our company invests in established, well-managed, medium-sized businesses across South Africa and Sub-Saharan Africa with a proven track record of solid performance. Neil and Dick remain actively involved in the company, making a valuable contribution to strategy and direction.

Track record

With some 200 deals completed to date, an established track record, staff highly experienced in private equity and with access to the resources of the RMB group, we provide a comprehensive private equity offering.

Committed partners

In addition, as an on-balance sheet company and through our commitment to dedicated, long-term relationships, service excellence and the growth and sustainability of our clients’ business, we are well placed to add more value for our partners.

Mission statement

Our mission is to be a guiding force and strategic partner in the financing of selective transactions, always seeking to yield maximum returns for each party involved.
