Your Best Partners for Business Value Growth
CLEARPRISM was founded by seasoned business, financial, technology and portfolio leaders who have spent all their careers helping clients discover and validate those things that bring the greatest value in the least amount of time. Understanding that industry experts agree that most business assets and portfolios tend to underperform to expectation, CLEARPRISM was founded with one mission in mind: to accelerate portfolio growth and value through the application of algorithms and machine learning.
Our track record of helping clients move beyond simply surviving, but to actually grow and outperform expectations is the reason why clients do business with us. We’re also recognized for applying algorithms, machine learning and artificial intelligence to portfolio diligence, planning, execution, management and exit—leading to higher return in assets and investments.
At CLEARPRISM, our core values guide the way that we do business internally and with all our clients and partners. CLEARPRISM’s Guiding Principles are as follows:
- Dedication – We are completely dedicated to our mission and the delivery of a highly efficient and effective process for our clients.
- Excellence – We are focused on providing the highest levels of excellence through consistent processes, experienced people and exceeding client expectations.
- Integrity – We follow through on our promises to our clients and each other. We ensure that we always follow the highest ethical and moral standards in everything we do.
- Communication – We are focused on listening first and clear, consistent communication with our clients.
- Respect – We treat everyone with mutual respect, are sensitive to others’ opinions, acknowledge the importance of diversity, and value everyone’s contributions.
- Courage – We say what we think (professionally, tactfully) even if it’s controversial, make tough decisions early, take smart risks, and challenge legacy thinking and processes.
- Judgment – We make wise decisions, treat root causes not symptoms, think strategically, and do the “right things, right!”
- Innovation – We discover new, practical solutions, challenge the prevailing assumptions, and always strive to look for “how it could be done better?”
- Passion – We inspire others, care intensely about our clients’ successes, celebrate wins, go beyond our “job”, act as leaders, and feverishly take the initiative and do what is right.
