Our strategy relies on diversification

Investment Process

Bridge Capital Holding investment strategy is to have a well-diversified portfolio that efficiently harvests risk premia and protects our capital for future generations.
We seek to provide inflation-adjusted returns to preserve the purchasing powers of the assets. We do this via diversification, combining academic theory with our understanding of financial markets, proper risk management and investing for a purpose. Our investment process relies on four basic pillars:
approach
  • Diversification & focus on downside risks
  • Going back to the basics
  • Risk Management
  • Responsible Investment

We seek to eliminate unrewarded risk exposures. Diversification is achieved across & within asset classes though allocating to uncorrelated underlying factor risk premia explaining securities & asset returns. We invest in equity, fixed income, private equity & real assets

We go back to the basics and focus on deeply understanding the markets. We base our analysis on portfolio theory, together with our understanding of the linkages that drive economies and markets, to guide us through our decision-making process

We use all risk management tools at our disposal, and continuously stress test our rules & methodologies across various economic regimes

Good corporate governance and sustainable business practices are extremely important to us. We prefer well-managed, financially sound companies with products and services that satisfy the needs of the present generation without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs

Real Estate

Bridge Capital Holding’s portfolio encompasses a diversified mix of international real estate assets, through direct or indirect exposure as investments in funds.

We look for high-quality assets that can deliver targeted risk adjusted return: we look for both long-term holdings with potential for capital appreciation, as well as income-producing assets with sustainable income returns. We maintain an underwriting discipline as the real estate cycle evolves and invest in durable themes that are sustainable across cycles & sub-markets.

Our real estate allocation is diversified by asset class, geography, and risk profile, with a preference for stabilized, income-oriented commercial & residential real estate assets. We also consider select opportunities in specialized asset classes including student housing, senior housing, medical/laboratory properties, and logistics.

Public Equities

Our investment process is structured around a factor-based investment approach coupled with a fundamental bottom-up analysis
We look through asset classes to focus on underlying factor decomposition and focus on the proper management of “Factor Exposures” as the main source of outperformance vs. select equity benchmark indices. We aim to efficiently harvest rewarded systematic risk premia in the equity markets, while eliminating unrewarded risk exposures, which allows us to earn higher returns per unit of risk.

Our equity investments are dictated by our overall strategic policy asset allocation; using qualitative as well as quantitative financial engineering tools, we have a dual focus on performance generation through optimal exposure to rewarded risk factors, as well as insurance & dynamic hedging against unexpected shocks that impact current value of assets & liabilities.

Our equity holdings give us exposure to the global economy, and the opportunities to earn real inflation-adjusted returns. Investments are spread across geographies & sectors, to diversify risk as much as possible, and exploit mispricing’s in countries, sectors, and factors.

Venture Capital

Bridge Capital Holding invest in early-stage businesses, projects and ideas. We take an opportunistic approach to that of our typical portfolio, we target companies that fall within the below criteria:

Potential

We look for market leaders or first movers disrupting an industry in a established market.

Proven Model

We look for rapid revenue growth, positive unit economics that showcase high profitability at scale.

Tech Enabled

We focus on technology enabled business
