What drives us

A duty to invest and work responsibly

All of us at Bridgepoint are driven by a set of values and beliefs about how we do business. These are shared across our Firm and are fundamental to our professional and personal conduct.

They underscore our duty to invest responsibly and help us maintain the highest levels of corporate governance and apply the highest standards of professionalism across the Firm.


We settle for nothing less than superior performance achieved by entrepreneurship, initiative, intelligent judgement and teamwork.


We always seek to make a difference – for investors, companies or in our duty as a responsible investor within the broader community.


We are straightforward, open professionals who act without arrogance and embrace the views of others without prejudice.

An inclusive culture

A working environment where people can be themselves

At Bridgepoint we believe in the power of the individual. We’re a decisions business and we make better decisions when we’re better informed – when we are able to see challenges and opportunities from multiple angles. Our approach to DE&I (diversity, equity and inclusion) is therefore not about tokenism or ticking boxes, it’s about our diversity of thought and collective intelligence and the impact they can bring on the quality of our decision-making, outcomes and performance.

We aim to create a work environment that properly reflects the communities in which we operate, where every voice is heard, and everyone’s wellbeing is valued. Why? Because doing so makes our company a better place to work. And because it makes Bridgepoint a better business and helps us achieve our wider, strategic goals. That’s why, by becoming more diverse, equitable and inclusive, Bridgepoint is becoming a better business.
