IK PF I

Leading global expert sourcing network and data provider for investment research

Third Bridge is a fast-growing primary research provider with a global footprint. The company provides its clients with unique insights into companies and markets through access to industry experts and market research. By leveraging its internal expert base and utilising its research analysts, Third Bridge can identify the most appropriate experts based on the client needs.

IK Partners reinvested in Third Bridge alongside Astorg following the exit of IK Small Cap I Fund in February 2021.

What Attracted Us to the Business

  • High growth and internationalisation track record to become one of the global leaders
  • Recurring and visible revenue streams
  • Strong alignment with Astorg, founders and management team

Our Value Creation Strategy

We are working alongside management to:

  • Drive sustained revenue growth with a focused commercial approach;
  • Demonstrate scalability and operating leverage; and
  • Continue to invest in new opportunities to grow the Group’s network and data.

“Having enjoyed a fantastic partnership with IK Partners over the last three and a half years whereby all parties were aligned, we look forward to the journey ahead and are excited that IK have decided to reinvest. Our ambition to expand into new markets and scale the business further is something we feel we can comfortably achieve with these investors to support us.”
