Mapping the world's value chains

Maps visually presents public and private company value chains in a single view, helping investors fast-track early-stage research within minutes.

Our analysts profile senior executives to capture their detailed knowledge about a company. These industry insights are synthesised to create each map, resulting in content found nowhere else in the world.

Maps allows our clients to prioritise their research focus quickly and then seamlessly navigate to Third Bridge’s content suite to access additional content for a deeper dive.

Why Maps?

Instantly visualise the value chain

Value chain information is typically fragmented, unqualified and outdated.

Maps solves this problem, presenting a visual snapshot of the entire value chain of a company, enabling investors to dramatically accelerate their early-stage research.

Each map uncovers value chain connections in unique ways.

Gain unique insights

Our analysts conduct in-depth profiling sessions with senior executives selected based on their relevant and first-hand knowledge of an industry.

Using proprietary visualisation software, industry insights are synthesised to create each map containing content found nowhere else in the world.

Focus on what matters

Maps marks the beginning of the research journey for our clients, helping them identify the most relevant industry segments and prioritise their investment research.

Maps acts as a gateway to Third Bridge’s content suite, enabling our clients to move faster and go deeper during early-stage research or due diligence.

What our clients think of Maps

Maps helps me to easily identify, and narrow, who and what I'm looking for.
European PE firm
Maps is really great, especially at the very beginning to get a first picture on how the market is structured for new investments. It allows me to dig deeper into commercial partners.
European PE Firm
Maps helps me identify new names and get my arms around the qualitative aspects of a company before digging into the financials. I like that I can see the relevant names from a competitive dynamics and comparable securities standpoint, and see how to think about the relative value.
US Hedge Fund
Maps helps focus our diligence on what matters and where to look first.
Global PE firm
It really is a very impressive product. I’ve seen the Bloomberg function, but that’s nothing like this.

For companies I cover I found some suppliers I didn't know within the wider industry - this was a valuable insight.

Maps offer an impact assessment for who in the supply chain I need to care about.

This is a fantastic differentiator and helps us focus on the right players.
Global Hedge Fund
Maps saves me an entire day of figuring out concepts, e.g. what hotel franchise models are vs managed hotels.

Maps is immeasurably useful - it will save us days of work.
Global Hedge Fund
Maps really brings your content together and allows me to more efficiently access the content you have.

When you’re trying to map out a lot of ideas, it’s very time inefficient. But being able to use Maps and look at the entire space - especially when it’s in a new solves a lot of that.
