Rivertrade Limited is a UK registered limited company established in August 2000, as the private investment company of John Kinder. Rivertrade specialises in providing seed and early stage capital and funding to private businesses across a wide variety of sectors.

The company generally invests in its own name, but alternatively investments are also made in the personal name of John Kinder or via special purpose companies depending upon the requirements of the investee. Investments may be in the form of equity, debt and guarantees or a mixture of each, decisions are made rapidly and flexibility is a keystone of Rivertrade’s success.

The investment portfolio is wide ranging but there are strategic linkages within most of the businesses that help promote each other. Rivertrade also often provides legal, accounting and company secretarial services in addition to its financial support.
