Bridges earns top marks across the board in 2023 PRI Assessment

5th February 2024

Bridges has received a 5-star rating in all four of its 2023 PRI Assessment modules, well above the PRI average.

We’re delighted to announce that Bridges has received a 5-star rating in all four of its 2023 PRI Assessment modules: Policy, Governance & Strategy; Private Equity; Real Estate; and Confidence-building Measures.

The Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI) now have over 3,500 signatories, representing over $110 trillion in assets under management. Each year, signatories are required to report on their responsible investment activities across the cycle, including governance, strategy, origination, management and exit.

We’re pleased to report that Bridges scored the maximum five stars in each of the four relevant modules, significantly higher than the PRI average and our direct peer group.

Philip Newborough, co-Founder and co-CEO said: “We’re thrilled to receive such strong scores across the board. It’s a fitting testament to the hard work of our investment teams and our dedicated impact specialists, and it reflects Bridges’ unwavering determination to put environmental, social and governance considerations at the heart of everything we do.”

The PRI is the world’s leading organisation for advancing a sustainable global financial system, encouraging the adoption of its Principles and collaboration on their implementation; fostering good governance, integrity and accountability; and addressing obstacles to a sustainable financial system that lie within market practices, structures and regulation.
