We take a selective approach to investing in high-potential businesses whose owners and management teams want an investment partner with the capital, experience, and record of successful collaboration required to achieve their liquidity and value-creation objectives. We provide entrepreneurs and management teams with the support they need to build exceptional middle-market companies.

The principals of Riata have been investing in privately-held companies—many of which are family-owned or entrepreneur founded—since 1991. We have sponsored 55 platform and 75 add-on acquisitions, totaling more than $4 billion in transaction value and $1.3 billion of invested capital. We supplement our considerable investment experience, extensive network of relationships, and core industry knowledge with the involvement of seasoned Operating Partners who have built and run successful businesses in our core sectors. These Operating Partners can serve as value-added and strategic resources to help management teams maximize the potential of their businesses.
