Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking Statement

This statement is issued by Third Bridge Group Limited (“Third Bridge”), a company incorporated under the laws of England and Wales, on behalf of itself and its group companies pursuant to section 54 of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and in respect of the financial year ended 31 December 2018. Third Bridge has a zero-tolerance approach to any form of modern slavery, forced labour or human trafficking. We are committed to acting ethically and with integrity and transparency in all our business dealings.

About Third Bridge

Third Bridge is a global research firm headquartered in London, United Kingdom, with over 800 employees globally. Third Bridge operates through its UK headquarters and its wholly owned subsidiaries which are located in New York, Shanghai, Hong Kong, Beijing  Mumbai and Los Angeles.

Third Bridge provides human insight into sectors, industries and companies by facilitating interactions between our clients and industry experts and through our own interviews of experts. The services provided by Third Bridge enable our clients to make better informed investment decisions.

Our Values

Third Bridge’s corporate values: Showing Respect, Developing People and Winning, underpin our culture and how we engage in business. Our Values form the benchmark against which we expect people to interact with colleagues, clients and the organisations we do business with.

By continually embedding our values within our business, we hope to build an environment where people are conscientious of their responsibilities and feel supported to report any concerns they have, including those relating to modern slavery. We operate a whistleblowing policy so that all employees know that they can raise concerns about how colleagues are being treated, or practices within our business or supply chain, without fear of reprisals.

Our Policies

Given the nature of Third Bridge’s business as a service provider, we do not believe that there is risk of slavery, child labour or human trafficking existing within our own business.

We operate internal policies to ensure that we are conducting business in an ethical manner. These include:

  • Employees

All employees are provided with a written contract of employment and our recruitment processes are in line with applicable employment laws. Third Bridge offers market related pay and rewards which are reviewed annually.

Third Bridge has a global Code of Ethics (“the Code”) and also a global Respect & Professional Conduct Policy (“the Conduct Policy”). Each employee has a personal responsibility to read the Code and the Conduct Policy, as well as to ensure that they fully understand their obligations and the consequences associated with any breach of those obligations.

  • Training

Third Bridge will be introducing employee training in respect of modern slavery in the third quarter of 2019 in order to raise awareness and educate staff on how to recognize and report concerns in relation to modern slavery.

  • Suppliers

We make little use of services demanding unskilled labour and those services and products we do use are sourced from reputable suppliers.  Our suppliers are for the most part limited to professional services, commercial real estate, staff benefits and healthcare, facility management, office equipment and computer hardware and software. We believe that the risk of modern slavery in our supply chain is low, but we remain vigilant and will continue to review our processes, in respect of new and existing suppliers, and our internal policies.  Enquiries in respect of modern slavery form part of our standard supplier due diligence process.
