The challenge

Bridges Fund Management is one of the pioneers of impact investment. It was one of the first firms to recognize the potential of making sustainable, social and wellbeing-related investments and generating commercial returns.  

 

Our ongoing challenge has been to educate talented investors of the merits of the sector.  We have been able to promote the Bridges expansion story - the firm has grown rapidly with hundreds of millions under management – and identify people with a genuine interest in impact investing. 

Our solution

Through our knowledge of the market and of Bridges itself, we recognized that success hinged on identifying high performing investment professionals with an interest in impact investing.  Led by Charlie Hunt, PER’s Director of UK, for each search, we consulted across our network to compile talent maps of potentially relevant people.

 

During each search, we combined our market knowledge, mapping techniques and proactively sourced referrals.   In some cases, we worked alongside Bridges who used their own networks and advertisement processes, completing assessments of all the people that these generated.   We made sure that exceptional investment skills and deep-rooted ethical investing values were ever present.

“Impact investing is a unique proposition – for investors and investment professionals. We know where to look for the people who share Bridges’ commitment and values.”

Charlie Hunt, Director of UK, PER

The results

Over the past ten years we have placed at Bridges a number of investors with a range of backgrounds and levels of experience. They all have in common a deep-rooted interest in sustainability issues and impact investing.

 

At PER, we are flexible in our methodology and work with our partners to build recruitment solutions around their preferences and needs.
