Otta's take

Sam Franklin headshot

Sam Franklin

CEO of Otta

Clear Street is building up-to-date, cloud native infrastructure for capital markets, bringing clients faster and easier access to things like reporting, clearing, custody, and execution.

It’s been quite a rise to prominence for the New York based startup, which surpassed a billion dollar valuation in 2022 despite only launching in 2018. However, given the previous industry experience of its founders, Clear Street's success should come as no surprise. The trio built the platform as a remedy to their own pain points, missed opportunities, and lack of access to key data in the prime brokerage space.

With its Unicorn status secured and its list of clients growing, Clear Street is now gearing up for a period of rapid expansion, both geographically and across the financial services industry. Securing recent capital in the form of a strategic investment from IMC, the company has capital to play with as it continues to pursue better infrastructure for capital markets.
