When Bridges was founded in 2002 it was believed that investing to achieve social and/or environmental impact would likely lead to below-market rate financial returns. Fourteen years on, we hope we have been able to demonstrate that strong financial returns and impact can indeed go hand-in-hand.
We would like to recognise and thank those early pioneer investors who backed Bridges’ first fund in 2002, many of whom have since invested across our fund range.
Our investor base has evolved through the years and today we are seeing the majority of our funds coming from institutional investors. We would like to thank those investors who have come later to Bridges, many of whom are developing market-leading thinking about sustainable and impact investment.
We report financial information quarterly to our LPs, with a yearly Partnership meeting to review the overall performance of the funds: here, we showcase the financial performance of each investment side-by-side with the IMPACT Scorecard, as well as aggregate fund-level financial and impact metrics. This brings to life for our investors our approach of using an impact-driven investment strategy to create superior returns.
