River Financial is a Bitcoin financial institution allowing long-term investors to buy, sell, and manage Bitcoin.
River Financial provides its clients with premium customer service, investment tools, and access to cutting-edge Bitcoin technology.
River Financial was founded in 2019 by Alexander Leishman and Andrew Benson. The company is headquartered in San Francisco, California.
River Financial's flagship product, a Bitcoin brokerage, provides sophisticated retail investors with a high-touch platform to buy and sell Bitcoin. Its product provides its clients with best-in-class security, a world-class client service experience, and investment performance tools such as cost basis tracking.
River serves deep-pocketed bitcoin investors and has in the past insisted it manages a “brokerage” service, not an exchange.
River Financial is backed by Polychain Capital, Castle Island Ventures, Slow Ventures, DG Lab Fund, Cygni, Pfeffer Capital and others. The company raised $17M in a Series A round on Feb 20, 2021. This brings River's total funding to $22.7M to date.
