Rivercrown expands debt team with appointment of Alessandra Bovina


Rivercrown, the real estate investment and advisory firm, today announced the appointment of Alessandra Bovina as Senior Analyst to its fast-growing Debt Investment Management team.

Bovina joins from Make Shift and will support with the servicing of Rivercrown’s existing mandates including its EUR 250m annual allocation mandate with a Sovereign Wealth Fund. She will also support with the origination, underwriting, execution and loan asset management of real estate debt opportunities in the UK and Europe. Bovina has previously held positions at Mediobanca and Unicredit Bank.

Rivercrown’s Debt Investment Management division has been highly active recently. In 2020 it launched its Special Situations Credit Vehicle, to support borrowers with funding gaps or short-to-medium term dislocation. This followed the appointment of Charles Archer to lead the division in late 2019.

Charles Archer, Head of Debt Investment Management at Rivercrown commented: “We are delighted to welcome Alessandra to our team. Her strong real estate finance experience will be invaluable as we continue to grow our business in the UK and across Europe, including in the special situations credit space as the market emerges from the pandemic.”


Established in 2004, Rivercrown’s business is organised in two divisions. Principal Investment Debt and Equity, and Financial and Capital Markets Advisory. Rivercrown has executed more than €10 billion of transactions through its Principal Investment Debt and Equity Division.
