First River Capital was founded by the Hamilton brothers to leverage off the combination of their investment banking, commercial and academic experience.

The firm was founded on the banks of the Eerste River (Afrikaans for ‘first’) in the heart of the Western Cape. The Eerste River is a perennial stream and serves as inspiration for our name as it mirrors two of our core values, consistency and reliability.

First River Capital is a boutique firm that specialises in strategy, corporate finance, mergers, acquisitions, buy-outs and private equity.

We generate value for our clients through developing long-term relationships and delivering bespoke, individual solutions.
