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 the Bridges approach

We focus on four thematic areas

  • 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
  • It helps us 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
  • It helps us build relationships with exceptional partners who care about purpose as well as financial return
  • It helps us build up a network of sector experts, who we can draw on for advice, support and recruitment
  • It helps us design products and services that reflect shifting demand
  • It helps us develop bespoke impact metrics that are fully aligned with commercial success
  • It helps us build businesses and properties that are more sustainable in the long-term
