Principal Adverse Impact

As permitted under Article 4 of Regulation (EU) 2019/2088 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 27 November 2019 on sustainabilityrelated disclosures in the financial services sector (the “SFDR”), Bridge Fund Management Limited (‘BFML’)  does not consider adverse impacts of investment decisions on sustainability factors on the basis that it is not a financial market participant that is required to do so given that BFML does not have on its balance sheet an average number of employees exceeding 500 during the financial year. BFML may choose at a later date to publish and maintain on its website the consideration of principal adverse impacts of investment decisions on sustainability factors. BFML will review its approach to considering the principal adverse impacts of investment decisions on sustainability factors under the SFDR once the regulatory technical standards come into effect, which is expected to occur on 1 January 2022.
