Third Bridge Featured in 20th Annual Sunday Times Profit Track 100

We are honoured to be among Britain’s top 100 private companies with the fastest-growing profits in the Sunday Times BDO Profit Track 100.


The ranking is now in its 20th year and acknowledges rapidly growing private companies headquartered in the UK. The award is based on the average annual growth rate in operating profits over the previous three financial years.

“We are honoured and humbled to be recognised for our profit growth, and it’s something we attribute to the hard work of our employees and the trust of our clients,” said Emmanuel Tahar, co-founder and chief executive officer at Third Bridge. “I find it especially gratifying that this growth did not come at the expense of bold investments back into the business that deliver client success and build a great workplace.”

Third Bridge opens new office in Los Angeles

We are delighted to announce the expansion of our global footprint with a new office opening in Santa Monica, which became operational today. Third Bridge first established a presence in the US in 2010 with the launch of our North American headquarters in New York City.


The opening of the Santa Monica location came as a result of strong demand from local investors for Third Bridge's services. By establishing a base in LA, our team is able to both better serve our existing west coast clients and engage new investors.

“Our decision to expand our operations to California supports our growth strategy. We have already built relationships with clients on the west coast, and we see a huge opportunity to expand our coverage and bring Third Bridge’s valuable service to a broader audience,” said Paul Carr, Third Bridge’s President.

With a strong presence already in Europe, Asia-Pacific and the East Coast of America, this expansion now positions Third Bridge as the top choice for North American clients looking to make informed investment decisions.

Spearheading the new office is an experienced team of Third Bridge veterans, a team which is expected to grow quickly before the end of the year.
