We are delighted to welcome Fenglin Zhao as a Director in our Client & Strategy Development team.

Feng will be responsible for developing and overseeing Bridges’ relationships with our institutional investor clients, alongside the development of existing and new strategies.

Feng previously led VCP Apex’s European distribution as Managing Director, advancing its private equity primary fund placement, secondary and direct investment fundraising activities.

Fenglin Zhao, Director at Bridges Fund Management, commented: “It’s wonderful to be joining the Bridges team, especially at a time when sustainable and impact investing is emerging as one of the most exciting areas in finance. Having spent a number of years in investment management and alternative investment, I’m keen to elevate opportunities for investors to put values-aligned capital to work: Bridges’ pioneering DNA, commercial success and impact leadership are a great place to do so. I’m looking forward to getting started.”

Maggie Loo, Partner and Head of Client & Strategy Development at Bridges Fund Management, added: “We’re delighted to welcome Feng to the team. Her talent and broad, cross-border experience will be hugely valuable to us as we look to diversify and expand the firm’s assets under management and deliver further powerful positive impact alongside attractive financial returns to our investors. With Feng’s expertise, we will continue to explore and develop relationships, both within and beyond the UK, to enable the continued growth of our impact-driven strategies.
