About Us

BennBridge develops and distributes actively managed equity funds, offering high-grade service and investment solutions to institutions and financial advisers.

BennBridge is part of the BFM Group, an investment company that partners with boutiques across the globe investing in Australian, UK, Asian and global equities; listed global infrastructure and real estate; and global emerging markets. In Australia the Group operates as Bennelong Funds Management.

People invest in our funds; our boutique partners manage the money under our regulatory licence; and we manage the business with the goal of delivering the best possible outcomes for our clients.

While each of our boutiques has its own distinctive philosophy and approach, they all believe in the benefits of active investment management. They are also all the majority owners of their businesses and invest in their own funds, ensuring their objectives are the same as our clients in always aiming for high performance.

It’s not only our boutiques who are our partners. Above all else we aim to deliver exceptional outcomes for our clients across the globe. We never lose sight of the fact that people are counting on us, and always strive to live our values of mutual respect and open communication – taking care of our clients, each other and the business.

    New BennBridge office opens in New York BennBridge US joins BennBridge (UK) as a subsidiary of Bennelong Funds Management .. read more

    BennBridge US joins BennBridge (UK) as a subsidiary of Bennelong Funds Management, with plans to distribute a number of its existing investment funds to institutional investors, similar to its strategy in Australia and the United Kingdom.

    BennBridge US has appointed Barbara Safranek, president, who will head up the company’s newly established office in New York.

    In her new role, Ms Safranek will build and develop strategic relationships within the industry and oversee institutional distribution.

    Craig Bingham, CEO at Bennelong Funds Management, said Ms Safranek has broad asset management experience across marketing, investor relations, product management, and client portfolio management that will be invaluable in her new role with BennBridge.

    “Barbara has strong relationships with foundations, endowments, private and public pensions plans, family offices, sovereigns, and consultants in the US and abroad, and is well connected in the market.

    “This experience will hold her in good stead as she drives the overall growth and strategic direction of the Bennelong and BennBridge strategies in the US market.”

    Mr Bingham says the expansion was driven by increasing demand for the BennBridge and Bennelong strategies from North American investors.

    “The initial focus will be on Pembroke Emerging Markets, Quay Global Investors and 4D Infrastructure’s strategies, and we have already seen strong interest from financial institutions in the US for these.

    “We intend to appoint additional executives in the US in due course, as BennBridge US expands its footprint.”

    Joining Ms Safranek in the New York office will be Pembroke partner and portfolio manager, Greg Mariasch. BennBridge UK partnered with emerging markets manager Pembroke in October 2017.

    “Greg’s relocation to New York from London will give US investors direct access to Pembroke’s strategy and process,” said Mr Bingham.

    The move follows the establishment of Bennelong subsidiary BennBridge UK in 2017. Bennelong has experienced significant growth in Australia and the UK in the past few years.
