The Riviera Group helps financial advisory firms achieve their growth objectives and gain a competitive advantage through strategic acquisitions.

We work with a client both to develop and to execute a winning strategy. We provide a disciplined and analytic acquisition process that creates transaction opportunities tailored to our client’s articulated acquisition strategy.

Buy-side assignments are generally structured either as one-off assignments, where we represent the buyer in the acquisition of a specific target; or as ongoing engagements, in which we apply our extensive research, fulfillment, and analysis capabilities to identify acquisition targets, qualify them for strategic fit, then initiate a transaction.

We Add Value to the Acquisition Process By:


Preparing Offering Memorandum (Executive Summary) in concert with marketing materials


Identify & screen potential targets and candidates for a fit with your strategic objectives


Effectively ascertaining the seller’s objective(s) & developing deal structuring options


Providing objective financial analysis & our proprietary business valuation services


Assisting with capital sourcing — senior debt, mezzanine & equity


Introducing legal, accounting & specialty consultants who are industry experts


Providing comprehensive due diligence support


Manage transaction closure process

The Riviera Group’s focus on and experience in working with financial advisory firms positions us to be a strong partner.

Whether you are a private equity firm, institutional buyer, or individual advisor, The Riviera Group is an obvious choice to assist in developing and executing successful acquisition strategies in the financial services marketplace.
