Equity and Debt Financing

Through RF’s Investment Banking service, we provide financing alternatives across the capital structure. We are the leading issuer in The Bahamas, having advised and placed approximately 65% of all commercial deals over the last 20 years.

Business Valuation

Business valuation is a process and a set of procedures used to estimate the economic value of an owner's interest in a business.

Public Offerings and Private Placements

We only take on assignments into which we ourselves are prepared to invest so the client for whom we are raising capital is assured we have its interests at heart.

Transaction Structuring

Every Transaction or restructuring scenario calls for a different solution.

Mergers & Acquisitions

Making decisions surrounding a merger or acquisition can be one of the most critical in any business. RF is committed to providing sound advice through our team of local professionals and network of global partners.


Privatization refers to taking a company that was previously government-owned or publicly traded into private hands. RF is able to assist in whichever capacity makes sense and avoids potential conflicts of interest.

Alternative Sources of Financing

We are able to provide access to various forms of financing that may or may not include some combination of traditional commercial lending. Our ability to source longer-term capital on generally, much more flexible terms than otherwise available is based on the following alternatives
