GOALS AND PHILOSOPHY
The key to our success is recognising investment opportunities with extraordinary potential in a given segment. We don’t choose randomly. We trust our experience and instincts in the segments we know well.
Our portfolio includes real estate, industry, agriculture and engineering. Our venture capital business focuses mainly on new technologies in education and healthcare, but we also welcome interesting partners from other segments.
We are based in the Czech Republic. We also seek out attractive opportunities abroad, e.g. in Central and Eastern Europe or in the United Kingdom. RSBC offices are also located in London and Ljubljana.
Growth on strong foundations
Active participation in strategic management
Robert Schönfeld, Chairman of the RSBC Group Board of Directors, originally founded the company to manage his family’s vast asset portfolio. The Schönfeld estate had been confiscated by the Communist régime in 1948 and returned to the family through the post-Velvet Revolution restitutions. But the investment business was not an obvious choice for Robert Schönfeld. MORE
“I studied at the Academy of Performing Arts, specializing in violin and music history. I liked it but when the need to take care of the family assets arose, I took it as a new challenge and immersed myself in economy and law textbooks for five years,” he says.
The International School of Music and Fine Arts in Prague serves as the outlet for his artistic ambitions. However, his primary job is to manage the RSBC Group. “We have come a long way in the past two decades, but I still regard RSBC as a family business. We strive to be a reliable and respectable company which our partners can trust under any circumstances. That’s the only kind of business that makes sense to us,” adds Schönfeld.
When the private investment group RSBC was established, it specialised exclusively in real estate investment. Later, it expanded its services to cover consultancy and asset management. Since 2008, the RSBC Group has focused on M&A consultancy and also on private equity since 2013.
