Educated in Edinburgh, in his 20s he launched Stuart Wyse Ogilivie and over a 10-year period developed the estate agency into the biggest in Scotland – subsequently selling to General Accident in 1987.

During his 30 years of investing, Rutterford has invested £11m in 90 companies and has enjoyed a large number of exits.

In June 2010, he received an honorary doctorate in Business Administration from Edinburgh Napier University.
