Clarey focuses on investment opportunities in fintech. She supports TCV’s partnerships with ByteDance, Brex, Klook, and Nubank.

Before joining TCV, Clarey worked in the Technology Investment Banking group at J.P. Morgan in San Francisco, where she focused on M&A advisory and financings for tech companies across the internet, software, systems, and semiconductor verticals globally. She also brings banking and early-stage investing experience from previous positions in New York City, Beijing, and Jerusalem.


Born in China in its early days of digital disruption, Clarey saw firsthand how rapidly technology can create new categories, expand markets, and fuel economic development. She has a special appreciation for international founders, especially in emerging markets, and is inspired to recognize patterns across geos.

Clarey spends her spare time reading, skiing, surfing, hiking, scuba diving, and trying different restaurants or new recipes. When it’s time for vacation, she’s likely to be getting on a plane to another exotic destination – her growing list of places she’s visited currently includes more than 50 countries.


Clarey received a B.A. in Mathematics and Economics from Yale University.
