April 2008

Harbridge Investment Partnerships was established in April 2008 as a specialist investment consulting company offering Strategic, Operational, Compliance and Due Diligence Services to the Investment Industry. Our mission was to enhance the optimal performance of the investment industry and its participants by consistently implementing investment grade infrastructure, continually raising the standards of the investment industry and providing comfort to clients of both internal and external investment managers via our due diligence services.



The word “Harbridge” is derived by a combination of the founder’s last name and the word “bridge”. The name was chosen to indicate the path to strategic and operational excellence via a partnering relationship with Harbridge. The original logo symbolised this partnership with the bridge between Harbridge and its clients.
