The Riverside Company, a global private equity firm focused on the smaller end of the middle market, has completed fundraising for its Riverside Europe Fund VI (REF VI). The firm’s latest buyout vehicle closed on €465 million of capital commitments, nearly 40 per cent more than its predecessor, making it the largest fund the firm has raised in Europe to date.

“We are grateful to our existing investors for their continued support and delighted to welcome many new LPs to the fund,” says Riverside Europe Managing Partner Karsten Langer. “Their support is a testimony to the quality of the team we have in Europe, our track record over recent years and the strong performance, resilience and adaptability our portfolio companies have shown since the onset of the pandemic.”

“We’ve been active in Europe for more than three decades, which allows us to have an experienced team of originators, investors, operators, robust processes and a recognised brand,” says Riverside Co-CEO Stewart Kohl. “I’m excited about seeing the Riverside Europe team continue to thrive, applying our pan-European approach to internationalising outstanding companies across the continent.”
