A Distinctive Investment Strategy


Many so-called “Impact Investments” either offer an inferior financial return, an indifferent social impact, or a combination of the two. While this is a compromise that many accept, it is not the Riparian Model.


Our differentiated strategy targets opportunities that maximize both financial and social performance, each directly reinforcing and enhancing the other. We compete with private equity to deliver superior risk-adjusted returns; our ability to deliver socially positive outcomes is a powerful competitive edge we can leverage on behalf of our investors.



35 %

of U.S. renters spend more than 30% of their income towards rent, driving demand for more than


new affordable apartments each year


Instead of meeting this need with affordable new construction, we lose more than

Against this backdrop, more than


billion in new capital has been allocated to workforce housing in recent years, with a new wave of public, private and nonprofit players transforming the investment landscape
