Seeking Capital

Looking for investment?

Established in 2013, Ruffena Capital has evolved to become a boutique private equity advisory business with its own investment platform - focused on raising true growth capital or alternative finance, typically in the £2-10m range for its clients. Ruffena’s investors are largely a private audience of experienced UK and international investors, funds, family offices and certain wealth managers, who prefer established, highly tangible opportunities that can demonstrate the ability to scale and generate returns.

Ruffena Capital secured or advised upon over £42m going into client projects over the 2016-17 financial year. In the current year this has risen significantly and Ruffena has also had two clients IPO and one full exit in 2017-18.

We do take on some earlier stage projects, however they must emphatically demonstrate thorough planning; tangible commercial potential; and a workable investment proposition.

What we are looking for

Our network of investors, businesses and financiers look for opportunities in compelling businesses with clever solutions to real problems. Companies driven by gifted management teams with a genuine passion and talent for what they do, are of highest appeal to our large audience of private capital.

If you think your business has these traits, we would love to hear from you.

Helping you secure finance

We have a staged, informative and professionally rigorous client selection process, which we endeavour to ensure is constructive even if we do not work with your business. After successfully passing through our selection process, we will help you refine your offering, maximizing your chances of securing the right investment on the right terms. We understand the market very well and know exactly what our investors are looking for from season to season and use this knowledge with our own significant experience to help you fund your business or transaction.

Our funding solutions

We help our clients realise their business vision through the best possible combination of finance options from a very wide range of sources, although most could reasonably be described as 'private capital' (funds, private investors, family offices, private financiers and private companies). Our funding solutions include equity investment, alternative finance, grants and tax credits. Our network has been built on reputation and credibility, opening doors for good companies to secure the right form or blend of capital needed.
