It’s about people first and capital second

The dedicated team at River Associates is committed to the success of our investments and to the fostering of our business relationships. From our support staff to investment relations, accounting, marketing and investment professionals, our team highly values ethical, friendly business practices that continue our commitment to excellence.

Our investment team is managed by seasoned partners that have worked together for over two decades. Since our founding in 1989, our partners have been actively involved in more than 40 platform investments and over 44 add-on acquisitions. Our team makes significant, personal capital investments in the firm’s funds which we believe aligns our interests with both our investors and portfolio company management teams.
