01 Heritage

Two families, one future

Roberts Pizzarotti has the backing of two families who are synonymous with the global construction and infrastructure sectors – the Roberts family from Perth, Australia and the Pizzarotti family of Parma, Italy.

Our Heritage

The family history of our founding partners is steeped in the construction and infrastructure sectors. This combined family history is steeped in the construction and infrastructure sectors and has provided a solid base from which RP has grown and emerged as a force in its own right.


Mr John Roberts AO founded Multiplex in Perth, Australia.

The business expanded across Australia into South East Asia, the Middle East, United Kingdom and Europe and the Multiplex Group was listed on the Australian Stock Exchange in 2003.

By 2007, Multiplex was one of the world's largest listed property groups offering development, construction, facilities- and funds-management services.

$7bn+ construction work in hand

$5bn+ funds under management

John's eldest son, Mr Andrew Roberts, worked with his siblings in the family business. Andrew finished his tenure as CEO in 2007 when the Roberts family divested their remaining ownership in Multiplex to Brookfield Asset Management.

Andrew established RF Capital as a funds management company, primarily servicing his family office.

In 1966, Mr Paolo Pizzarotti succeeded his father and grandfather as head of the business.
