We’re a primary research business providing professional services to Private and Public Equity Investors, Consultants, Managers, and more.
At Third Bridge, we’re a primary research business providing professional services to Private and Public Equity Investors, Investment Consultants, Investment Managers, and more.
We help those investors understand companies and the issues they face. We build and share intelligence on key industry drivers and the latest sector trends. And we offer the kind of critical knowledge that’s regularly overlooked by conventional investment research, and which investors won’t find anywhere else on the planet.
Put simply, we’re creating the world’s largest database of human insights - and we’re the architects of an incredible ecosystem that fuels better and faster investment decisions.
Together, we're on a mission to design, build and deliver a different kind of future. It’s all about creating a space where people are empowered to make bold moves. To explore new ways of working. To go where no one has ever gone before.
We're evolving fast
Since we began our journey in 2007, we’ve quickly evolved into a global research organisation with a 1,300-strong team solving our clients' specific problems from eight locations across three continents. In that time, we’ve focused on quality as much as quantity. We’ve aggressively scaled up our business. And we’ve continually invested in our people and the impact we want everyone to be able to make, personally and professionally.
We're on a mission
Our mission is to democratise the world’s human insights and flip the traditional research model upside down. And we know what will help us achieve it: the quality of our people, and the skills and knowledge they possess. Join us and your mission will be just as clear. We want Third Bridge to be a place where you can learn, grow and progress… every day.
We're a first-choice destination
To make well-informed investment decisions, our clients require access to the most relevant experts - and their unrivalled knowledge and expertise. We won’t stop until we’re the first choice destination for our clients - not just a premium partner. It also means that when it comes to career opportunities, we want to be the first choice destination for you, too.

Our business doesn’t just span the globe - it embraces all kinds of different cultures, too. Which means our people can make an impact in lots of different ways. But one thing that will always unite us and bring us all together is the warm and welcoming environment we’re proud to have created here at Third Bridge.
It’s what drives us to learn more, reach further, and make our business an incredible place to be. And it’s what inspires us to show our true authentic selves, to be our best, and to do our best work.
From London to Shanghai, we’re building something amazing, and here are just some of the brilliant ED&I focused initiatives we’ve put in place.
Breaking the bias
We believe in creating a safe space so that everyone can be their true and authentic selves, and we can only do that through enabling psychological safety and removing biases. That’s why we deliver Breaking Bias training to everyone within their first nine months after joining us, and it includes a roundtable discussion where we can share our experiences and learnings.
Our Women at Third Bridge Mentorship Programme is a great example - and it was a huge hit! 150 people formed our first cohort in 2022, including members of our leadership team. The programme is designed to nurture our female talent and help them achieve their career goals, through coaching, building networks and learning from one another.
Our Women at Third Bridge Mentorship Programme also host a quarterly coffee roulette initiative that matches colleagues from around the world, and invites them to meet virtually or in person. The idea is that everyone gets the opportunity to meet new colleagues and discuss a range of female-oriented conversation starters prepared by the group.
