River Associates

About River Associates

At River, investments are more than financial transactions. Guided by our philosophy of “Investments with Management”, we focus on developing meaningful partnerships based on mutual respect, trust and integrity. Success is defined not only by returns for our investors but also by the answer to one simple question for our management teams. Our firm invests alongside management in all of its companies. We often partner with existing management but will also coinvest with executives who assume a leadership role with a prospective platform company. In the latter case, River Associates seeks to partner with seasoned operating executives who have demonstrated the ability to successfully manage a small, medium or large company or a substantial division or subsidiary of a large company.
