Recommend to a friend:

Bridges Ventures was founded in 2002 with the vision that hands-on investment and entrepreneurial talent can be used to address some of the challenges facing our society, as well as drive sustainable growth. Our sustainable and impact investment strategy is to focus on opportunities where investments can generate investor returns through helping meet pressing social or environmental challenges – be it backing businesses that generate jobs in underserved markets, or building environmentally friendly care homes for the elderly to sustain an ageing population, or providing flexible financing for innovative community transport models.

About us

In pursuing our strategy over the last fourteen years we have innovated a range of investment vehicles across three main fund types – Sustainable Growth Funds, Property Funds and Social Sector Funds – and we are building a strong track record of financial and societal returns.

We have benefited enormously from the leadership and guidance of our founding Chairman, Sir Ronald Cohen, and from the private equity firms and entrepreneurs – Apax Partners, 3i, Doughty Hanson and Tom Singh – that have backed us since inception.


Our ethos

Bridges Ventures is majority owned by its senior management team, with the Bridges Charitable Trust having a substantial minority ownership interest and control over any change to the firm’s founding commitment to raise only funds with both financial and social goals. The Bridges team also donates the equivalent of 10% of their own profits to the Trust’s philanthropic activities.

While we are accountable to investors in our funds and to our shareholders, we take into account the interests of all our stakeholders. Our standards are embedded in the culture of the company and are reinforced by our recruitment decisions and our annual performance review process. Details of this can be found in our Responsible Investment Policy, Ethical Charter and Sustainable Property Policy.

Bridges Ventures is also signatory to the UN Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI). The PRI are very much aligned with Bridges Ventures’ investment philosophy and we believe that it is vital to be part of this ground-breaking effort to promote sustainable investing.
