ABOUT US

 

RIVA Asset Management is a ‘new breed’ of real estate and private equity investment platform efficiently combining an established, regulated environment with highly customized investment strategies for institutional investors and family offices.

 

Riva was created by a family office to preserve and grow its own wealth. From this mind-set Riva offers like-minded private investors, family offices and institutions the opportunity to invest in distinct real estate and private equity investment strategies either as direct bespoke co-investments or through pooled vehicles.

 

RIVA is a CSSF regulated SICAV-SIF fund. RIVA ABSOLUTE RETURNS SICAV-SIF is a specialised investment fund (“SIF”) regulated and supervised by the Luxembourg CSSF (Comission de Surveillance du Secteur Financier).  RIVA ABSOLUTE RETURNS SICAV-SIF includes multiple fully segregated

sub-funds/compartments each with an independent share class.

WHAT WE DO

 

Our distinct USP is that – coming from the Principal side – we understand the need for, and aim to offer, maximum flexibility of ownership and control to

like-minded investors.

 

From high to low direct involvement, from segregated assets to co-investment, RIVA offers highly customized investment opportunities within a structured and

regulated environment.

 

Through our extensive global network and working experience in real estate and private equity, we are able to identify innovative and attractive opportunities in niche markets worldwide, initially with a focus on Europe.
