Some of the challenges we face
The U.S. ranks 23rd out of 30 developed countries for inequality
Around 40m Americans don't have proper access to financial services
The bottom 50% of earners have seen no income growth since the 1970s
The richest people live ten years longer than the poorest
How are we helping to solve this problem?
Since 2002, our Underserved Markets focus has led us to invest in businesses, property developments and social sector organisations that are seeking to create jobs, broaden opportunity and provide higher-quality, more accessible services in less affluent areas – from healthcare to low-cost fitness to vet care.
The Old Vinyl Factory
Building over 200 much-needed new homes for Londoners
Bridges acquired part of the Old Vinyl Factory in London, UK, in a joint venture with HUB. The site is located next to the connecting station of the new Crossrail route linking central London to Heathrow Airport.
This development forms part of a large project to regenerate a 17-acre site that was once the EMI factory, but which has been derelict for 40 years. The full development will invigorate the local community through local employment opportunities and the creation of new communal areas and leisure opportunities. It will also provide much-needed housing to the London market. The two buildings will be also constructed to a BREAM Very Good level, and Code for Sustainable homes Level 4.
Since 2002, we have done the following
