Co-Founder & Chief Executive Officer


CB Insights has named Clear Street to its sixth-annual Fintech 100 ranking, a prestigious list showcasing the 100 most promising private fintech companies of 2023. Our mission is to replace the outdated infrastructure used across capital markets - and inclusion on this list reaffirms that the industry is ready for change.

Clear Street was chosen from a pool of over 19,000 private companies, including applicants and nominees. The winners were selected based on factors including equity funding, investor profiles, business relationships, R&D activity, news sentiment analysis, competitive landscape, and criteria such as tech novelty and market potential.

This accomplishment spotlights the position that Clear Street now holds in the industry. We’re competing against some of the best - and we welcome the challenge. We’re strengthening our capital base, building our leadership bench, and expanding to new asset classes, geographies and client personas. Just this year, we’ve:

  • Completed the second tranche of our $435 million Series B capital raise, which values Clear Street at $2.0 billion.
  • Entered the list of the largest 25 hedge fund brokers based on SEC filings by hedge fund managers.
  • Acquired React Consulting Services and its proprietary, cloud-native futures clearing platform, BASIS.
  • Added to our senior leadership team, welcoming highly esteemed experts from across tech and finance to lead us through this next phase of growth.

Clear Street is uniquely positioned to provide our clients with technology-driven prime brokerage solutions that add significant efficiency to the market while focusing on minimizing risk and cost. We are steadfast in our vision for a single-source-of-truth platform to serve a variety of investor types across multiple asset classes on a global scale.

Thank you to our entire Clear Street team for the hard work and dedicated service, and to CB Insights for this prestigious recognition!
