About

ClearMacro

An investment technology company built and run by institutional investors for investment professionals.

Our history

ClearMacro was founded in London in 2014 by Mike Simcock, a seasoned institutional portfolio manager and Managing Director at the Government of Singapore Sovereign Wealth Fund (GIC).

Mike realized that there were no products available to help CIOs and investment professionals to systemize their data and investment processes. He created ClearMacro, to provide institutional investors with a front-office software/service solution that processes changing data/information into live investment signals and strategies. The ClearMacro team developed a framework that others could use “off-the-shelf” or build upon internally for a range of use cases.   

In the 6 years since founding, the team has scaled up materially, attracted strategic investment and continually improved the depth and breadth of the product (and will continue to passionately do so!). The first commercial deployments took place in 2018 and the company is proud to be growing across a range of different markets.

Why ClearMacro

Institutional investors are navigating challenges such as pressure on fees and cost structures, along with limited ability to effectively leverage the exponential growth of available data. Traditional research has become uneconomic yet most investment firms struggle to create and execute alternative data-driven models. ClearMacro helps investors develop a viable data strategy to ensure that data is a performance edge and not a cost.

What we believe in

Creating solutions made by professional investors for investors can deliver actionable insights that matter.

Asking the right questions and choosing the reliable data is the only way to rise above the noise in a world drowning in data.

Leveraging the hybrid model of man and machine (judgement & quant) to outperform pigeonholed approaches.

Rewiring for alpha by connecting insights across asset classes and analytical frameworks.

Levelling the playing field by providing some of the best quant and data techniques to investors who lack a viable data strategy or path to implementation.
