Clare Market Investments was named after Clare Market, a traditional farmer’s market in central London with history dating back to the early 1600’s. The market, which predated the London Stock Exchange, was a place where ordinary citizens could buy and sell common goods. Absent massive marketing budgets and creative packaging, buyers and sellers “traded” on their reputations. Today, parts of the London School of Economics occupy the original site of Clare Market. Clare Market Investments pays homage to its namesake and history by honoring fair and honest trade.
