About our name

Our firm is named after the Galápagos Islands in the Pacific Ocean, where Charles Darwin developed his thoughts on natural selection.

Unencumbered by preconceived ideas and not afraid to go against the prevailing wisdom of his day, Darwin drew on his detailed observations of the islands’ extraordinary ecosystem to formulate the principle that the species that survive and thrive in a fiercely competitive setting do so not because of their size, strength or speed but because of their ability to adapt to constant changes in their natural surroundings.

Intense competition is not the province of nature alone; the same degree of competitiveness is found in business and in the global economy.  Emulating Darwin, a fundamental tenet of our firm is that the ability to adapt to an ever-changing environment is the key to survival and eventual success in business and investments. We make it a point to closely examine our surroundings and to learn from such observations. And like Darwin, we are independent thinkers; we do not follow the crowd; we are neither captive to preconceived ideas nor afraid of challenging conventional wisdom.
