Targeting Opportunity

Bow River believes there is a unique opportunity to provide flexible private credit solutions to the U.S. middle market with traditional bank lending in decline and a growing “dry powder” gap for private equity buyout financing. For more than 20 years, Bow River has partnered with founders, management teams and private equity sponsors to develop collaborative approaches to build and grow businesses, many of which are located in the overlooked Rodeo Region.

Creating Value

With nearly 100 years of combined credit investment and portfolio management experience throughout credit cycles, Bow River’s Private Credit team provides customized financing solutions across the capital structure that support the needs of middle market businesses. We endeavor to create value for our business partners, while offering a differentiated and compelling investment opportunity to investors.

For Business Owners, Management Teams and Advisors

Like our Private Equity colleagues, Bow River’s Private Credit team works in partnership with founders, management teams, private equity sponsors, advisors, regional banks and other lenders to provide flexible financing solutions that build enterprise value. By combining Bow River’s established network with the Private Credit teams’ extensive investment experience, we are well-positioned to support businesses and to fund growth, recapitalizations and strategic acquisitions. We proactively seek long-term business partnerships that endure throughout economic cycles.
