Bridges is focused exclusively on sustainable and impact investment. Redleaf is tasked with raising its profile among investment communities in both the UK and the US.
The Redleaf team consists of associate director Amy Williams and senior account executive Lizzy Chesters. They will report to James Taylor, head of communications at Bridges.
Williams said: “During my time spent working in the US, I learned a great deal about impact investing and worked with several specialist managers in the industry. I am very excited to now be working with one of the pioneers of impact investing. Bridges Ventures has a fantastic reputation and impressive track record and I am really looking forward to promoting their impact-driven investment approach while raising the profile of the industry as a whole.”
Taylor added: “As a specialist sustainable and impact investor, we were very impressed by Amy’s in-depth understanding of the field and excellent contacts on both sides of the Atlantic. We look forward to working with her and the Redleaf team as we continue our efforts to bring impact investing further into the mainstream.”
Bridges invests in high-impact SMEs, properties and social sector organisations in four areas: health & wellbeing, education & skills, sustainable living and underserved markets.
