Raffaele Riva is not a new name in the business world. He has built a brand in the industry over the years. The 57 years old AUREA Multi-Family Office founder, made headlines in 2008 after starting the company that has shaped the real estate, wealth management, and planning sectors. The Italian and Swiss citizenship holder didn’t stop there because he later started Gestioni Patrimonialia SA, Aurea Consulenti Associati SA, Aurea, Milano Fiduciaria, and BGB AUREA Ltd.
The experience as a founder and a managing partner from 1997 to 2008 provided him with the impetus he needed to start AUREA Multi-Family Office. Raffaele Riva’s specialization revolved around mergers and acquisitions, estate planning, corporate financing, wealth management, and corporate restructuring portfolios. He also played a vital part in offering advice on international cross-border issues.
Raffaele Riva acquired the managerial knowledge from an international company he served from 1992 to 1996 in a Senior Executive position. The post exposed him to different markets as a board member of the company’s affiliates in South and Central America, South Africa, Western Europe, Canada, and Europe. Additionally, Riva’s tenure as the supervisor assistant and later to a deputy manager in a big company in Milan from 1988 to 1992 honed his auditing and accounting skills.
However, Raffaele Riva’s success lies behind extensive training and hard work. The Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore from Milan honed his economic skills after graduating with honors in 1987. He majored in mergers and acquisitions, corporate financing, banking, and tax laws, and accounting among other disciplines. Two years later, Riva graduated with a Dottore Commercialista degree from the same institution and became a Qualified Accountant.
In 1997, he graduated from Canton Ticino’s School of Business Management after pursuing an SSQUEA postgraduate program. The English, French, and Italian speaker graduated from Southern Switzerland’s Applied Sciences and Arts University after completing a SUPSI postgraduate program in 1998.
