RD HERITAGE GROUP: CREATING OPPORTUNITY
RD Heritage Group is a partnership of several family offices and their portfolio investments. While our offices are located across the globe, we share mutual goals and understandings.
The family offices have diverse investments including those in food, real estate, pharmaceuticals, medical devices, biotech, solar energy, and in oil & gas exploration and production. The families have earned a reputation for excellence in their fields.
In addition to having profitable endeavors, the family offices believe in the power of capital markets to solve urgent social and economic challenges and improve lives.
We believe in the importance of human capital. We are committed to a thriving economy and exploring investments in critical issues that foster sustainable economic growth.
We stand for great ideas and effective action—not ideology.
RD Heritage was founded by Robert Davis, John Dean Harper and Jim Carmichael at Famcor Oil (up to $200MM in top-line revenue) for the benefit of the Davis and Famcor family offices. Later the families teamed up other like minded family offices who invest in real estate, healthcare, biotechnology, pharmaceuticals, energy, AI (artificial intelligence), blockchain, and oil & gas. RD Heritage also partners with several Gulf-based sovereign wealth funds.
In the Middle East, RD Heritage has partnered with Hadi Al Alawi at the Al Hayat Group a Bahrain multi-family office and investment company. RD Heritage and the Al Hayat Group have partnered in a number of transactions with the Gulf Cooperation Council and its governmental and private investment entities. The Al Hayat Group, www.alhayatgroup.com, has interests in diverse industry sectors that take several forms, wholly owned subsidiaries, joint ventures, affiliates, and shareholding investments. Al Hayat Group is the industry leader in its activities and the core of our company reflects proven operational expertise surrounded by superior foundation of values, ethics, and a wealth of heritage experience. The Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) consists of the following 6 countries: Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Bahrain, Qatar, the United Arab Emirates and Oman. More than 50% percent of the world’s oil wealth originates from the GCC, with a population of 20 million.
In Indonesia/New York RD Heritage has partnered with one of the largest Indonesian family offices with significant food, real estate and healthcare investments. The family invests only their own capital and are differentiated by their permanent and proprietary capital base which allows for efficient decision-making free from external influence; maximum flexibility with transaction structures and investment period; and complete alignment with all stakeholders in creating long-term value.
RD Heritage Group partners with private companies to help them enter into new markets, pursue M&A opportunities, and grow sustainably. We invest in firms that have established or emerging brands in real estate, energy (oil & gas - upstream, midstream and downstream), healthcare, biotech, pharma, hospital roll-up, artificial intelligence and the agriculture/dairy space. We focus on these specific industry sectors because our accumulated knowledge, operating partner network, and broader relationships offer a strategic advantage to our partners. Unlike many private equity firms, our focus allows us to enter a partnership with a deep understanding of the businesses so that we can create immediate, sustainable value.

Al Hayat Group, ww.alhayatgroup.com, is a family owned business with interests in diverse industry sectors that take several forms, wholly owned subsidiaries, joint ventures, affiliates, and shareholding investments.

The Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) is constituted of the following 6 countries: Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Bahrain, Qatar, the United Arab Emirates and Oman.
More than 50% percent of the world's oil wealth originates from the GCC, with a population of 20 million. This region relies heavily on its oil resources for revenue – which is plentiful – and the government is taking strides / several efforts to diversify the economy. Primary areas of expansion interest include Education, Healthcare, Biotech, and the Hospitality sectors.
The UAE has the world's ninth highest density of millionaires, with 40 out of every 1,000 households (four percent) holding private wealth of at least $1 million. The UAE also ranks 15th in the world by ultra-high-net-worth (UHNW) households, defined as households with more than $100MM in private wealth, with three out of 100,000 households falling into this category.
Qatar ranks first in the world with the highest density of millionaires, with 14.3 percent holding private wealth of at least $1MM. Kuwait ranks third with 11.5 percent, while Bahrain (4.9 percent) and the United Arab Emirates (4.0 percent) ranks seventh and ninth, respectively.
Private wealth in the Middle East and Africa (MEA) region will grow to an estimated $6.5TRN by the end of 2017, with a projected Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 6.2 percent. This increase will be largely driven by new wealth creation linked to strong Gross Domestic Product (GDP) expansion in oil-rich countries.
The GCC's long-term sustainability portfolio is robust, and private wealth in this region of the world continues to be on the rise.

$75MM Equity Facility with Ibdar Bank http://www.ibdarbank.com/
Mohammed Ketani, Head of Private Equity has committed up to $75MM to fund US acquisition of oil & gas existing production with expansion opportunities. Ibdar is a multi-disciplined Islamic investment bank that combines financial expertise with a proven track record of business ingenuity and responsible execution in order to deliver wealth to stakeholders. Ibdar Bank is backed by the second largest sovereign wealth fund in the world, KIA (Kuwait Investment Authority.)
Distressed Exploration & Production (E&P) asset acquisition strategy
RD Heritage business development team has targeted both public and private companies, which need to divest core or non-core assets from their balance sheets, often due to the companies over leveraging at time of high crude oil (WTI) prices. With the precipitous drop in WTI to half the levels seen in the summer of 2014, this has given RD Heritage a unique and unprecedented opportunity to make acquisitions. RD Heritage and its partners traditionally invest the initial capital into these distressed company opportunities, of up to $15MM to $50MM, and then brings in institutional or family office investors as well as reserve based lending (RBL) 1st and 2nd lien facilities to fill out the capital stack up to $350MM to $450MM. RD Heritage has assembled a platinum team of petroleum engineers, operators, geologists and MBAs to execute this strategy.
$350MM Commitment from Energy Fund
There has been some confusion and misreporting regarding Global Energy Capital’s offer to fund RD Heritage for $350MM. This written offer occurred on June 13, 2015, dating back to discussions beginning on July 2014.
ACTUS' strategy was to establish a subsidiary company for each licensed technology and to provide all of the financing, operational, research, development, and business partnering support the company requires during the initial stages of its development. In 2011, ACTUS established its first two subsidiary companies, Convoy Therapeutics, Inc. and EnduRx Pharmaceuticals, Inc., to develop and commercialize innovative platform technologies from University of California, Santa Barbara and the Sanford-Burnham Medical Research Institute.
ACTUS Biotechnologies was a technology development company, founded with the aim of identifying and providing a bridge to the commercialization of the most transformative technologies and drug candidates in development at leading universities and research institutes in the U.S. Run by a Management Team with significant experience in Life Sciences and in the growth and financing of start-up businesses, ACTUS was well positioned to maximize the potential of the inventions it licenses.
EnduRx was founded in 2011 based on the multivalent tumor and cardiovascular homing nanotechnologies invented by Dr. Errki Ruoslahti and his laboratory at the Sanford-Burnham Medical Research Institute. The EnduRx nanotechnologies can selectively target, image, and treat cancerous tumors (glioblastoma, prostate, breast, and others), clotting events (myocardial infarction, stroke, peripheral artery disease, pulmonary embolism), and atherosclerosis. EnduRx Pharmaceuticals works with strategic partners on drugs that have targeting challenges from a safety and/or efficacy perspective, and on new cancer and cardiovascular diagnostic imaging applications. In-house programs include re-formulated Bivalirudin for Acute Coronary Syndrome and unique tumor targeting systems for glioblastoma, breast cancer, and solid tumors.
Convoy was founded in 2011 based on the proprietary Skin-Penetrating And Cell Entering (SPACE) peptide technology invented by Professor Samir Mitragotri and his laboratory at University of California, Santa Barbara. The SPACE peptide technology is the first that can effectively deliver large molecules into skin and cells. The delivery system has an optimal profile with skin penetration efficacy that far exceeds previous attempts. The SPACE peptide is neutral in charge, water soluble, and non-toxic to cells. It is used as part of a highly adaptable plug-and-play delivery system, whereby significant penetration into skin is possible without conjugation to the active. The company has two lead programs: CycloPsorbTM for psoriasis and HA-202PH (topical hyaluronic acid) for wrinkles and fine lines
ACQUISITION OF 8 - 12 HOSPITALS IN INDONESIA
With our Indonesian partner we are acquiring 8--12 hospitals in Tier 2 cities in Indonesia. We have teamed up with a highly regarded US consulting/operating partner to assist us with these initial acquisitions. That partner will assist us with establishing a CEO, Head of Nursing, Head of Quality Control and IT Systems; and then will help us improve and expand operations as well as providing superlative healthcare.
According to data from the Ministry of Health of Indonesia, there are 2454 hospitals around the country, with a total of 305,242 beds - a very low figure of 0.9 bed per 100,000 inhabitants. Most hospitals are in urban areas. Among these, 882 of these hospitals are government owned and 1509 are private hospitals. According to the Worldbank data in 2012, there are 0.2 physicians per 1,000 people, with 1.2 Nurses and Midwives per 1,000 people in Indonesia. Out of all the 2454 hospitals in Indonesia, 20 have been accredited by Joint Commission international (JCI) as of 2015. In addition, there are 9718 government financed Puskesmas (Health Community Centre) listed by the Ministry of Health of Indonesia, which provide comprehensive healthcare and vaccination for the population in the sub-district level. Both traditional and modern health practices are employed.
Indonesia's community health system are organised in three tiers: on top of the chart is Community Health Centre (Puskesmas), followed by Health Sub-Centres on the second level, and Village-Level Integrated Posts at the third level.
In 2010, an estimated 56 percent of Indonesians, mainly state employees, low-income earners, and those with private coverage had some form of health insurance. The rate is expected to reach 100 percent by 2019, following the implementation of a system of universal social health insurance coverage that was launched in 2014. The aim is to grant free services for all hospitalisations in basic (class-3 hospital beds).
Healthcare provision in Indonesia has traditionally been fragmented, with private insurance provision for those able to pay for it alongside basic public coverage for the poorest in society and NGOs working in specialised areas providing services to those not covered by public or private schemes. In January 2014, the Indonesian government launched Jaminan Kesehatan Nasional (JKN), a scheme to implement universal health care in Indonesia. It is expected that spending on healthcare will increase by 12% a year and reach US$46 billion a year by 2019. Under JKN, all Indonesians will receive coverage for a range of treatments via health services from public providers as well as those private organisations that have opted to join the scheme.
With integrity nothing else counts, without integrity nothing else counts.
We live in deeds, not years: In thoughts not breaths; In feelings, not in figures on a dial. We should count time by heartthrobs. He most lives who thinks most, feels the noblest, acts the best.
