Our Philosophy

Clearwater’s philosophy is that the key to success is opportunity recognition. This includes understanding the barriers to success and for competition, appropriate financial structuring and correct positioning and marketing. By doing this the product or service is sculpted to proactively drive demand. Clearwater believes that problems are often compounded when they are not fully clarified.

This includes recognizing which collateral, unintended consequences or liabilities are created by what may appear the initial clear cut solution. We believe that problems are essentially challenges that should serve as catalysts for normal strategy re-assessments and improvements. In addition to this, they should serve as a core piece of the iterative approach to growth.
