Clear River Investments is a US-based, single family office focused on investments in growing businesses. With permanent capital, Clear River is focused on longer term investment horizons than typical private equity funds. Clear River targets small to mid-cap cash flow positive companies in established sectors with a mission to add operational expertise and increase cash returns.


Our firm was founded as a single family office by an entrepreneur who brought together an operating team to acquire and build great companies. Clear River does not have a traditional "fund" structure which allows us the flexibility to own our investments indefinitely. This investment horizon aligns with our focus of investing in stable, cash flowing companies and turn them into great businesses. Our partners, operating companies, and employees share this common vision for sustainable long-term capital appreciation


Serving as a steady and strategic co-pilot, we help our operating businesses manage and accelerate their growth by seizing new opportunities, mitigating risks, and preparing to scale their business models. We understand that in many cases our investment and involvement is the first time a management team had considered selling their business or seeking outside capital. For this reason, we focus on working with those teams to optimize operations, achieve improved overall performance, and gain market dominance.


We understand success is rooted in trust, integrity, and ethics. Clear River prizes open communication and transparency to ensure mutual trust and understanding for all parties. Operating in the lower middle market, Clear River’s objective is to deliver measurable value to all stakeholders through enhancing and expanding profitable and sustainable business models.
