THE CLEARACCESS® ADVANTAGE
experience. access. ease.
ClearAccess is a platform created to simplify investing in illiquid alternatives by combining years of experience, access to high quality managers, and a streamlined process to access private investments.
ClearAccess provides a platform with lower costs to clients compared to investing in hedge or private equity fund of funds directly. Clearstead accomplishes this by working with a third-party administrator whose administrative fees are negotiated by Clearstead. Clearstead does not receive any compensation from alternative managers or third-party administrator.

CLEARACCESS SIMPLIFIES INVESTING IN ALTERNATIVES
Over the past twenty years, demand for illiquid alternative investments from our institutional and private clients has continued to grow. In the past, however, there were obstacles to direct investing for many clients. The ClearAccess platform removes these obstacles so clients can build customized and professionally allocated portfolios of hedge funds and private equity.
Clearstead currently advises over $1 billion in active illiquid strategies. For years we have built a research team dedicated to finding quality illiquid investments with strong performance for our clients. Access to such managers can be difficult, and only can be built over time, through a strong network, and by continuously scouring managers for opportunities.
