Every person, or group of people united by a common purpose, is driven by passion. At the RussellStone Group, that passion is building world-class companies. We do this by investing in and managing assets through the agri-business value chain, from seed to shelf. Their success enhances our legacy as a formidable investment group.
RussellStone Group is a privately owned investment house that deals in hard and soft commodities. Our group has grown rapidly over the past 17 years and now extends to interests in Australia, Argentina and the United States of America. We look enthusiastically at our future prospects as we continue to invest and diversify in all areas of the agricultural value chain. The two AAA-rated investors we have on board attest to our stable and reputable track record as an investment partner.
Central to our vision is a commitment to uplifting all our people and their communities by encouraging them to make career choices based on passion and commitment.
In driving new and sustainable opportunities through our values of passion, service and integrity, we aim to build a group which will last for a century and longer, promoting development locally and internationally and influencing present and future generations of leaders.
God doesn’t necessarily give us the partner we want but rather the partner we need.
Show me how you will measure me and I’ll show you how I will perform.
Leaders need to make sacrifices the biggest of them all the risk to be wrong.
You made a mistake, now go on and fix it.
I’m such a selfish capitalist that I give you what you want so that I can get what I want! It’s about the freedom to choose.
Tell me your problem but more important what you plan to do about it.
Our services surpass those of a private equity partner. We bring skills, experience and solid commercial networks to the fore, enabling our investments to thrive, rather than merely survive. We believe in partnerships and prefer to co-invest. All partnerships are structured to create win-win situations for all stakeholders. We actively manage assets under our portfolio. This gives us the edge in developing highly competitive agri-businesses.
We capture upstream margins starting with companies in genetics and primary farming, the seeds from which all other agriculture follows.
Our aim is to capture margins in every link of the agricultural value chain – starting with companies in genetics and primary farming, the seeds from which all other agriculture follows. We provide them with capital and expertise, and then manage them as part of our investment portfolio.
Drawing on our years of experience and expertise, we’ve established companies able to foresee – and mitigate – the risks involved with volatile commodity markets.

With a number of agro-processing and consumer goods manufacturers under our portfolio, RussellStone Group has positioned itself as an established player in value-added agro-production. From this solid position, we’re able to capture both midstream and downstream margins, as we progress towards our next aim: becoming market-leading distributors of world-class products.
Capturing margins along all paths of the agricultural value chain involves being integrated with consumers which, as a group, RussellStone is expanding into.
One of our ambitions is to transform South Africa and the rest of Africa into world class competitors.
