We’re delighted to announce that Bridges has been awarded the highest possible mark of A+ in all three eligible categories of the 2019 Principles for Responsible Investment: Strategy & Governance, Private Equity and Property. This puts us in the highest rank of investment managers around the world.

The PRI’s annual assessment plays an important role in promoting best practice and transparency around ESG investing. Supported by the UN, the Principles of Responsible Investment were established in 2006 to help asset owners and managers encourage the integration of ESG considerations into their investment decision-making process.

At Bridges, we are a firm supporter of the PRI’s mission. We’ve been a signatory to the Principles since 2009, and we share its view that greater transparency can help to raise standards across the board.

We’re particularly pleased to receive the highest grade as it reflects the importance we attach to ESG best practice – not just in terms of risk mitigation, but also as a value-add opportunity. We firmly believe that better ESG practices ultimately create more value for our investors. This grade is testament to the commitment of our investment teams and the market-leading support they receive from our in-house impact management team.
