Who We Are

Patient Capital Partners Aligned With Management Teams
As a private New England-based investment firm that invests its own capital, River Birch Partners, LLC is uniquely able to help exceptional lower middle market companies to achieve long term success via the implementation of strategic growth strategies, maximizing return on investments and supporting performance improvements.

Our focus is on investment opportunities with quality management teams, recurring, predictable revenue streams with meaningful growth potential. We will also consider investing in outside managers including search funds and independent sponsors. We approach each of our investments with a long-term value perspective in a professional, ethical, fair, innovative and efficient manner.

River Birch does not invest from a fund of institutional capital and as a result has no restrictions on its capital providing tremendous flexibility including an unlimited investment timeline.

What Makes Us Different

Long-Term Success

It is our belief that actively and constructively working alongside the existing management of firms we invest in to develop and implement value-creation strategies creates long-term success. Successful partnerships are built on trust, respect and integrity and we strive to work with people who share these values. We apply a patient timeline to each of our investment scenarios.

No Outside Capital

River Birch Partners does not manage outside capital – we invest our own capital. Doing so provides for a true alignment of interests with the business owners with whom we partner. We have full discretion over our capital, which has no time constraints. This provides maximum flexibility and allows us to act quickly and efficiently.
