Announcing the news, Emmanuel Tahar, Co-founder and CEO of Third Bridge said:
“With analyst time at a premium and research budgets under pressure, investors want high-quality differentiated research at a range of price points. For over a decade, we’ve built one of the highest-quality expert networks in the industry, with over 2 million executives globally. This product will help expand our offering to a wider group of clients with more diverse research needs.”
Community will help augment Third Bridge’s existing products – Connections, Forum, and Maps – giving clients the option of accelerating early-stage research through private consultations, interview transcripts, and value chain maps. No other provider offers this blend of investment research tools at scale.
Aria Georghiou, Global Head of Community, added:
“The combination of Community’s investor-led interviews and Forum’s independent analyst-led interviews is unique and incredibly powerful. It gives clients access to comprehensive company and thematic coverage as well as a perspective on peer investor sentiment. Analysts love the breadth and depth of our Forum content and our Community generated content provides the perfect way to enrich it. Community is additive and offers clients an enhanced experience during early-stage research, deep due diligence and monitoring.”
Community Interviews are transcribed, anonymised, and published following an embargo period. All Community transcripts are vetted using the Third Bridge Compliance platform, applying the industry-leading compliance framework Third Bridge is known for and leveraging decades of experience serving the needs of institutional investors globally.
