Financial Investors and Portfolio Companies

We advise global private equity firms, development finance institutions (DFIs), project finance platforms, infrastructure funds and investment banks looking to enter into or grow in new markets across Africa, Asia, the Middle East and Europe.  Being first on the ground in new geographies is an integral part of the Riverhouse’s DNA, and we have been advising clients on their market entry and human capital strategies in emerging and frontier markets since the mid ‘90s.

With a placement track record spanning senior investment professionals and capital raising specialists, C-suite, operational management and infrastructure, we advise our clients on all aspects of their human capital requirements at this crucial point in the growth and development of their business. We also work actively with their portfolio companies to optimise their businesses through transformational hires and comprehensive senior-level hiring strategies.  Our search experience spans diverse sectors including TMT, consumer goods, healthcare, financial services, energy and infrastructure.
