Riverwood Capital, a private-equity firm founded by former KKR executives, has recently secured its largest pool of capital to date. The firm has raised $1.8 billion for its fourth fund, Riverwood Capital Partners IV, and related vehicles, surpassing their $1.5 billion target. Co-founders Francisco Alvarez-Demalde and Jeff Parks expressed their enthusiasm for the successful fundraising effort.
This significant capital raise reflects investors’ confidence in Riverwood’s ability to identify and invest in high-growth technology companies. The firm’s track record and expertise in the technology sector have positioned them as a preferred partner for investors seeking exposure to this rapidly evolving industry.
With the successful closure of its latest fund, Riverwood Capital is well-positioned to continue its strategy of identifying and investing in innovative technology companies. The firm’s ongoing success in raising capital underscores the strong demand for investment opportunities in the high-growth technology sector, and solidifies its position as a leading player in the private-equity landscape.
