Stears is a financial data and media company based in London, United Kingdom and Lagos, Nigeria. Stears was founded by alumni of the London School of Economics and Imperial College London.
In a business environment lacking sufficient data and information, Stears provides local and international market professionals with the analysis and intelligence they need to connect the dots in Nigerian markets.
Our objective is to become the most influential provider of Nigerian business and economic information by creating a network of data, analysis and intelligence.
The Writer’s Network generates publishing content for Stears. The Writer’s Network is a private cluster of voluntary contributors to Stears who adhere to the strictest principles of traditional journalism. As a member, you can expect to be held to the highest standards of analysis and knowledge. Credibility, transparent sourcing and respect for intellectual property are strongly upheld even as the free flow of information is encouraged.
Stears accepts writers of the highest literary standards to its Writer’s Network. Writers must possess a strong grasp of their subject area and must be willing to engage with rigorous intellectual analysis of their material.
Current members of the Writer’s Network come from academic or professional backgrounds in economics, finance, law, public policy and political science. All members of the Writer’s Network can be found on the Writer's Network Page.

Many media organisations align themselves to particular ideologies meaning that they argue from the same set of underlying assumptions. Stears eschews this approach.
There is no merit in saying we believe in any particular socio economic principle. Instead, we believe in the value of permitting all inoffensive ideologies in informing the debate. We advocate the explicit use and revelation of the underlying assumptions used in all conversations, thereby ensuring that viewers and readers understand the assumptions guiding our discussions.
All our content is permitted to align to any inoffensive ideological position. Our duty is to provide a platform for transparent, rigorous and coherent debate. Rather than taking a particular stance, we seek to direct our viewers and readers’ focus to the nature of the ideological conflicts and their relevance in the analysis and conclusions drawn.
So where others align, we enlighten.
