“Third Street is about leveraging best practices gleaned from more than a decade and a half of experience in investment management recruiting at both large and boutique executive search firms,” said Ms. Pollock. “David and I share the belief that focus, transparency and access enable Third Street Partners to optimally serve clients and candidates.”
Third Street Partners conducts retained searches and partnership consulting projects with a broad range of traditional and alternative investment organizations. Its core clients span institutional and intermediary distribution, insurance companies, investment subsidiaries, banks, high-net-worth firms, RIA's, OCIOs, plan sponsors, endowment, foundations and family offices. The functional areas where the firm has expertise include senior business management, investments and distribution positions. Third Street Partners represents both global and regional investment management firms.
“It’s absolutely essential to me and to the members of my team that Third Street is a true partnership between our search firm, our clients and the candidate universe,” Ms. Pollock said. “That is why I named the firm Third Street – to encapsulate the urgency that all three constituents in a search be served by the highest standards. Only through a consistently hands-on, transparent process can a search be successfully executed.”
