We're here to design, build and deliver a different kind of future.

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 designing, building and delivering 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.

A global team with local knowledge

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 journey

Our story began with a very different kind of journey. Travelling in the Okavango Delta in Botswana, one of our founders discovered an intriguing place called the Third Bridge. As local lore went, it was the last bridge to cross before arriving in unexplored territory; a region that is difficult to find and demands commitment and determination to reach.

The name ‘Third Bridge’ is not just a reminder of an extraordinary African adventure, but a perfect metaphor for what we do.
