Climate change and inequality are the two greatest challenges of our generation – and they are inextricably linked.

Bridges is a global leader in sustainable and impact investing. We invest exclusively in solutions that help to decarbonise the economy, or enable more people to fulfil their potential.

We believe that investing in this more sustainable, more inclusive future is not only a moral and ecological imperative. It’s also a unique opportunity to unlock lasting economic and social value.

The Bridges platform

Private Equity
Outcomes Partnerships

The Bridges Property Funds invest opportunistically in needs-driven growth sectors that support the decarbonisation of the built environment, alongside better health and wellbeing outcomes. Since 2012, we have developed over £2bn of assets across 70+ transactions, delivering attractive investment returns and measurable positive impact.

Bridges backs ambitious growth companies whose products or services are supporting the transition to a more sustainable and inclusive economy. We specialise in identifying sectors and business models where a focus on sustainability and impact can unlock a significant commercial growth opportunity. We can then invest in like-minded partners via our growth equity fund, or our pioneering patient capital vehicle.

Outcomes partnerships are a transformative new model for the design and delivery of complex human and environmental services.  Operating through our not-for-profit subsidiary Bridges Outcomes Partnerships, our team has now provided the project finance and project management to support more than 70 of these innovative projects, which have supported almost 50,000 people globally.

How we think about impact

We have more than 20 years’ experience of identifying areas where a focus on sustainability and impact can drive attractive investment returns alongside positive environmental or social outcomes.
