Equity investing - Developed Markets
Service with Minor Environmental Footprint
Bridges Fund Management is a fund manager that specialises exclusively in sustainable and impact investing, with offices in London and New York. They aim to generate attractive risk-adjusted financial returns for our investors alongside measurable positive social and/or environmental impact. Founded in 2002, Bridges has since raised over $1bn of investor capital across its platform of Sustainable Growth, Property and Social Sector Funds. Bridges invests in business, properties, social enterprises and outcomes contracts that help to address pressing long-term social and environmental challenges, with a focus on four key impact themes: health & well-being, education & skills, sustainable living and underserved markets. Their strategy is to focus on opportunities where growth and impact go hand-in-hand; that is, where achieving important social and environmental goals also drives better performance. This could be by backing businesses that generate jobs in areas of high unemployment, building environmentally-friendly care homes for the elderly to sustain our ageing population, or providing flexible financing for innovative youth employment programmes.

This section also evaluates the ability of a company to protect their mission and formally consider stakeholders in decision making through their corporate structure (e.g. benefit corporation) or corporate governing documents.
What is this? A company with an Impact Business Model is intentionally designed to create a specific positive outcome for one of its stakeholders - such as workers, community, environment, or customers.
