The RiverPark Ventures investment strategy is guided by a number of fundamental principles:
RiverPark Funds (“RiverPark”) is a privately owned asset management firm with two wholly owned registered investment advisers and approximately $3 billion of assets under management across a variety of fixed-income and equity strategies. RiverPark was founded in 2006 by industry veterans that have worked together for over twenty years (formerly at Baron Funds). In addition to the strategies that are managed in-house, RiverPark has formed strategic alliances with other investment advisers that it believes offer unique investment strategies. RiverPark offers its investment advisory services through its own family of mutual funds branded under the RiverPark Funds name, separate accounts and investment partnerships.
RiverPark’s portfolio managers and research analysts have decades of public investing experience in many sectors in which RiverPark Ventures focuses. RiverPark Ventures has access to this robust research capability, and the firm’s extensive industry contacts, as it sources potential investments and conducts due diligence on potential opportunities. Finally, RiverPark has built strong back office, accounting, reporting and compliance functions that are shared with RiverPark Ventures.
