About Us

Our story begins in 2007, when Chris and Mark were working together in the Asset Finance Group at Mizuho International, a principal investment team formed to focus on the life settlements market.

How we started

After leaving Mizuho, Mark came up with the concept of “Bloomberg for life settlements” – a platform that would allow for communication between market participants and create a common language to express value and risk – and started ClearLife as the springboard to launch his idea.

In July 2009, the first version of ClariNet was released and in August 2009, Mark co-authored the leading professional work on market practice, “Life Settlements and Longevity Derivatives” (Wiley Finance, 2009).

Our team continues to leverage our experience as longevity investors to build practical solutions for our clients in all markets.

We have teams based in the US and UK working remotely, and we’ve worked this way for over a decade.

Our flexible working makes it easier to support our global customer base, who are located across the world – from Australia to the USA.

Our team

A team of people gather around a row of computer screens.

We currently have full-stack developers, a UI tester, and a UX/UI designer in the development group and a quantitative research group which is focussed on mathematical modelling.
