OUR STORY

Build Wealth. Create Sustainability.

Revayah Capital is an investment firm with a purpose that reaches beyond financial returns.

Revayah is a Hebrew word used uniquely in the Scriptures in Psalm 23:5 - “my cup runneth over” – ( רֹ֝אשִׁ֗י כּוֹסִ֥י רְוָיָֽה ) meaning abundance, saturated, over-flowing.

Capital can be a powerful vehicle for change. We partner with our investors to acquire interests in privately held businesses and improve them through proven leadership in areas of strategy, problem solving, business development, and operational execution. Our approach offers investors the opportunity to grow their wealth and leave a legacy through providing sustainable philanthropic solutions.

What sets us apart.

To fund our investments, we approach investors to participate on a deal-by-deal basis. Guided by proven and successful investment strategies, the Revayah Capital team targets net investment returns of 12% for our investors while providing sustainable philanthropic solutions for Non-Profit and Charitable Organizations focusing on one or more of the following areas: education, training, children and youth programs, faith-based social services, and humanitarian and relief services.

The uniqueness of the model is twofold, 1) the investor benefits from a targeted net investment return of 12% annually and, 2) a 501(c)3 charitable vehicle is funded via voluntary investor participation. As a result, we target both financial and economic returns while building capital in charitable vehicles for the long-term sustainability of their beneficiaries.

Capital is a powerful vehicle for change.

We partner with our investors to not only grow their wealth, but to leave a legacy through providing sustainable philanthropic solutions.

Traditional private equity investing can have a deleterious effect on companies owned and operated by leaders who are philanthropically minded. With a strict focus on financial returns, typical PE type investments leave little to contribute back to those in need in a sustainable manner. Our investment model offers a sustainable approach consisting of both financial and social returns, both of which are measured and targeted towards creating real and enduring value without imposed limits of fund cycles or exit horizons.

Investors that participate with Revayah Capital via our investment model can have an amplified philanthropical influence for good and a sustainable impact extending into future generations.

The skills and experience of our team facilitates the growth of the underlying business as well as maximizing the return to our investors while being a positive influence on the culture.

Our investment approach is flexible, but typically guided by the following:

  • Focus on companies with historical cash flows - special situations are not ruled out.
  • Investment flexibility – equity and debt options. Typical equity stake of 20-100%.
