RF Investment Partners (“RF”) is a Small Business Investment Company (“SBIC”) Fund with $283.9 million of capital under management (including private capital and projected SBA leverage), dedicated to using flexible financing solutions to support exceptional management teams in lower-middle-market companies.

We use an opportunistic approach to investing, customizing debt and equity investments that best meet the needs of owners and managers.  We provide investment capital ranging in size from $5 million to $25 million that arise from the following situations:

  • Management Buyouts
  • Recapitalizations
  • Acquisition or Growth Financing
  • Shareholder Liquidity Events
  • ESOPs

We seek to partner with proven management teams and business owners whose companies possess the following characteristics:

  • Stable historical financial performance with $2-$10 million of EBITDA
  • Defensible market position
  • Limited customer and vendor concentration
  • Defined catalyst for growth
  • Management who are substantial stakeholders in their business
