Proprietary research in TMT Investments

TMT investment research accessed on a tablet

Keeping up with the pace of global innovation and understanding the intricacies of TMT sub-sectors — which include hardware, semiconductors, software, media and telecoms — can be challenging. But public investors can capitalise on the myriad opportunities and challenges across the dynamic TMT sector by leveraging Third Bridge’s primary research professional services.

Early TMT investment in emerging areas of the TMT market offers scope for higher returns, but there are often significant downside risks, which Third Bridge can help credit investors to understand. Due to the nature of new technologies, patents and other intellectual property within the TMT market, this sector is of particular interest to growth investors. With M&A and IPOs also commonplace, speaking to industry experts with extensive first-hand knowledge about specific issues and companies can help TMT investors make better informed decisions. Through our proprietary SmartLink methodology, we’re able to stay abreast of the latest developments across the TMT landscape by continuously monitoring industries, stocks, macro-economic trends and deal flow.
