The Yuba Group was founded in 2010 with the focused goal of providing independent, objective analysis and advice to higher education and not-for-profit institutions. We recognize that institutional capital planning and financing have become even more challenging in today’s uncertain economic environment, and the volatility in the markets and the unique culture at each institution makes decision-making even more difficult than in the past. We seek to bring together complex quantitative analysis with experienced strategic approaches based on detailed knowledge of financial institutions, capital markets, rating agencies and higher education and not-for-profit institutions to best serve our clients.

What’s a “Yuba”?
- Originally made by Buddhist monks and prized for its delicacy and nutritional value, yuba is derived from carefully skimming off the top of hot soybean milk. According to legend, the first Chinese Emperor Qin Shi Huang (B.C. 259 to 210) believed that consuming yuba would prolong life.
- The Yuba River runs through northern California and is considered one of the last strongholds for wild, self-sustaining salmon and steelhead runs. It is also home to the Yuba Goldfields created during the mid-1800s Gold Rush.
