Empower Investment Teams to Achieve their Goals. We do this through quiet excellence in both our people and software.


From our experience working for fund managers, stock exchanges and investment banks, we recognised that the asset management industry needed solutions that were purpose-built for their unique needs. This was the catalyst behind Calibre more than 20 years ago.

Starting small, Calibre was established by David Snowsill and Martin Duggan in 1999, focused on quantitative investment analytics.

In 2018 we launched a reimagined RMS that top equity asset managers around the world use now for their fundamental and ESG research.

Although the team has grown over this time, the founders remain closely involved in the innovation, product evolution and client engagement behind Calibre.

Staff. We have staff located in London, Melbourne and Sydney, and believe in fostering a diverse, innovative and highly committed, client-focused culture.

Because of Calibre’s efficiency, and the way it melds datasets in such an easy to use way, teams are in a better position to conduct analysis, and also to ‘daylight’ it to large groups of research users.

Calibre is pretty amazing in the way it cuts the friction out of the job.
