Our thematic approach drives value throughout the investment cycle

Investment with a difference

Across our platform of funds, our expertise lies in finding investable solutions to pressing social and environmental challenges. Over time, we’ve come to focus on four areas in particular – because that’s where we think our capital can make the biggest difference.

Michele Giddens, Bridges Co-Founder, explains how this thematic approach helps us to generate positive commercial and social impact >>

We focus on four thematic areas

See how we invest within each theme by clicking on the diagram below

  • Health & Well-being

  • Education & Skills

  • Sustainable Living

  • Underserved Markets

This thematic focus acts a value driver throughout the investment cycle. It helps us:

  • Understand the long-term trends or demand drivers that are changing our markets
  • Identify opportunities where an impact-driven strategy can open up a new market, or serve as a source of competitive advantage in an existing market
  • Build relationships with exceptional partners who care about purpose as well as financial return
  • Build up a network of sector experts who we can draw on for advice, support and recruitment
  • Design products and services that reflect shifting demand
  • Develop bespoke impact metrics that are fully aligned with commercial success
  • Build businesses and properties that are more sustainable in the long-term
