River Associates Investments LLC
was founded in 1989 as a private equity partner for management teams in buyouts, divestitures and recapitalizations of lower middle market companies. River Associates has invested in companies operating in a wide variety of industries including manufacturing, high-margin distribution, industrial services and select retail businesses. The firm will invest throughout the United States and Canada and focuses primarily on companies with adjusted operating income (EBITDA) ranging from $3-10 million. River Associates initiates only a handful of investments annually as the firm believes that each portfolio company is equally important and deserves the full attention of the River partners.
The limited partner investors of River Associates, many of whom have invested with the firm through numerous funds, are individuals, families, endowments and institutions who see substantial value in supporting an experienced and proven team of investment professionals with a lengthy track record, numerous realized successful investments, substantial personal capital invested in each fund, a consistent focus on the lower middle market, and a reputation for the highest level of integrity.
