Primary Insight is a medium-sized expert network based in New York. It was founded in 2005 as an in-house expert network at Bear Stearns. After the bank’s collapse and acquisition by J.P. Morgan in 2008, Primary Insight was spun out as an independent firm in 2009. Funding was provided by the Hidary Group led by the founder of Vista Research.
Prior to setting up Primary Insight within Bear Sterns, the founders worked at Vista Research, an expert network founded in 2001 and eventually acquired by Guidepoint in 2009. Vista Research was also where the founders of Ridgetop Research and Mosaic Research started out. Today’s Primary Insight management team combines backgrounds from GLG, Guidepoint and Coleman Research.
Primary Insight offers standard expert network services:
- Phone consultations
- In-person meetings and workshops
- Hosted events and roundtables
The firm has offices in New York, Greenwich, CT, Hong Kong and Miami.
