Bridges has a long track record of delivering both strong financial and societal returns by investing in direct property and property-backed operating businesses.
The Bridges Property Alternatives Funds aim to leverage this expertise to offer investors a new opportunity to benefit from market-leading financial returns whilst creating lasting societal and environmental impact.
Our competitive advantage is driven by our team’s deep real estate expertise, combining a focus on off-market deals in strategic locations, and an understanding of how to drive value through physical, environmental and operational improvements.
Our expert knowledge of demographic and lifestyle changes has allowed us to identify and invest in emerging locations and growth sectors such as healthcare, education, SME workspace and hospitality, often well before the mainstream market.
The funds invest across several preferred sectors and transaction types:
- Preferred markets: Healthcare, education, business space, hotels, residential and sectors where occupational requirements are driven by changing demographics and consumer needs
- Transaction types: Direct real estate, joint ventures and property-backed operating businesses where value may be increased by physical, operational and environmental improvement.
