Bridges Fund Management Ltd, previously Bridges Ventures (Bridges), is a leading UK-based impact investment fund manager with £800m in assets under management. Its consulting arm, Bridges Impact+ (Impact+), engages in research and development activities related to impact investing. The grant supports "The Impact Management Project", which aims to create a widely-adopted, common convention for describing impact goals along the investment value chain, with the intent of making it easier to set goals and measure and optimize performance in impact investing. Bridges believes that creating a consistent convention for describing impact will overcome a critical barrier and should help draw many more investors and greater capital into the marketplace. Grant funds are being used to pay honoraria to participants in meetings that will be held in multiple countries in order to test the new convention with end users, civil society leaders, and others.
