Rivers Finance Group, the holding company for Rivers Leasing Plc, has been named in the The Financial Times’ inaugural Future 100 UK Special Report, detailing fast growing UK companies that are also making an impact on their industry or wider society.
Launched in partnership with data provider Statista and supported by law firm Mishcon de Reya, the report was built on data from the FT 1000: Europe’s Fastest Growing Companies, in which Rivers Leasing has featured in two consecutive years, ranking at 186 in 2017 and at 391 in 2018.
Rivers Leasing was cited for its ‘consistent growth’, and features alongside industry leading companies across all sectors including Fevertree Drinks, MOO Print and Just Eat.
To feature, businesses had to excel in one of four categories, three of them qualitative and one based purely on data. Together these criteria identified companies seeking to make a positive impact via their environmental, social and governance (ESG) policies, promoting diversity, or disrupting their industry.
Businesses were selected by an expert panel led by FT journalists. Judges valued companies that went beyond corporate speak and industry minimum standards, and demonstrated a thought-through approach to boosting diversity in management.
Ratan Daryani, Chairman of Rivers Leasing said: “At Rivers Leasing we work hard to maintain sustainable organic growth by honouring positive relationships with industry partners, maintaining strong corporate governance and providing consistently good and efficient customer service.
By doing this we feel that we are best able to serve all stakeholders including investors, shareholders and our team, as well as the British SMEs that our work supports in their ongoing growth and development. It is wonderful to have those values recognised and acknowledged both in the FT1000 this year, and in this week’s Financial Times’ Future 100 UK, especially alongside so many other businesses that we respect and admire.”
