Raffaele Riva, Founder and President of AUREA Multi-Family Office, has extensive experience in international business, having managed companies in several countries, including Canada, South Africa, and countries in Western Europe, as well as Central and South America.
Although Riva likes to stay informed of world current affairs and all the latest developments in economics and technology, he is driven primarily by passion. Always in search of better ways to do business, and better ways to provide more extensive services for his client base, Riva relies on his insights and maintains an optimistic approach toward doing business.
The Family Office Approach to Financial Management
Raffaele Riva’s successful international AUREA Multi-Family Office is one example of this global tycoon’s vision and commitment to superior service. Unlike most traditional financial services firms, AUREA functions as a multi-family office. This means that AUREA can provide its clients with absolutely personalized and customized financial services. These services include wealth and asset management, auditing services, estate planning, private investments, real estate investment, international tax advice, and other similar services.
The beauty of the AUREA system of investment management is that each customer is a universe unto himself, and AUREA’s services are tailored specifically to each client’s individual needs, interests, goals, preferences, and objectives. While traditional investment firms create standard products and then guide clients to use them, a multi-family office such as AUREA creates unique products personally tailored to each client.
Customized Global Financial Services are the Way of the Future
As the business world grows more global, the need for international financial services becomes greater and more complicated. Riva is committed to staying abreast of these rapidly changing financial needs, and to provide personalized financial services for his clientele that will help them navigate evolving global landscapes and scenarios in the financial world.
For many of AUREA’s clientele, the services that AUREA provides entail international negotiations and transnational transactions. AUREA has become specialized in handling these types of complex circumstances in its commitment to providing unmatched service for its high-profile clientele who often do business in more than one geographical location.
In order to best serve the varied needs of their elite clientele, the AUREA Multi-Family Group has set up several subsidiary companies that are regulated under AUREA. These include Aurea Gestioni Patrimonialia SA, and Aurea Consulenti Associati SA, located in Switzerland; Milano Fiduciaria, located in Milan, Italy; and BGB AUREA Ltd., based in London. These smaller, specialized companies work to serve locally based needs and expedite contracts, documents, and audits depending on the country in which any particular deal is being executed.
As head of the AUREA family, Riva likes to remain involved at the operational level with AUREA’s subsidiary companies. As AUREA’s top executive, he brings his professional skill-set to the business of helping international entrepreneurs with top-tier financial services such as asset management, estate and wealth planning, and real estate and trust investments that allow them to successfully do business internationally.
AUREA also invests generously in these subsidiary companies, providing funding to help them get off the ground, and following through with operational and administrative guidance in order to help them succeed.
Bringing International Savoir-Faire to the Table
Raffaele Riva has a lot of experience with startup firms, thanks to his track record of launching several startups between 1997 and 2008. Prior to that, he worked with large multinational corporations negotiating deals in locations around the world, and is a licensed, seasoned Accounting and Auditing Specialist in both the UK and Italy.
Riva completed undergraduate and graduate degrees at Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore in Milan, specializing in the areas of accounting, corporate financing, tax law, and mergers and acquisitions. Having earned his Dottore Commercialista, he became qualified to work as a Certified Public Accountant in Italy. He later continued to pursue further education, completing two post-graduate programs, one at the Canton Ticino Management Business School in SSQUEA, and a second at the University of Applied Sciences and Arts of Southern Switzerlandin in SUPSI.
As an entrepreneur and investor, Riva is led by his passion and enthusiasm for the companies that he invests in and the entrepreneurs that he mentors. He remains open and willing to be inspired by visionary and innovative ideas as well as brilliant individuals who present new opportunities for advancement. Riva calls his appetite for knowledge “insatiable,” and spends his free time gather information on current world events as well as the latest developments in technology and business around the world.
He affirms that this is what keeps him successful: making smart decisions informed by current market trends and incorporating a vision for new developments in various business sectors that could affect the growth and expansion of not only his own investments, but those of his clients. For Riva, the bottom line is doing what he loves, while also improving quality of life and making smart financial decisions on behalf of his international clients.
