Delivering Unparalleled Value
For Every Financial Need

Opportunistic. Focused. Results-Driven.

Over the past 27 years, we have built an unmatched, diversified financial services platform with the expertise to lead in every sector. The fact that our financial solutions do not easily square into just one business sector sets us apart from our competitors and empowers us to better serve clients and return value to shareholders.

While our grassroots efforts have largely flown under the radar, our demonstrated execution across the platform, and therefore our performance, have not. B. Riley's diverse suite of business capabilities goes beyond traditional financial service offerings. By leveraging cross-platform expertise and assets, our business units are uniquely positioned to provide full service, collaborative solutions at every stage of the business life cycle and in all market conditions. B. Riley is made more exciting by our willingness to invest our own capital in opportunities organically derived from the platform along with our ability to maximize return on investment by leveraging in-house operational expertise.
