Our Name

For centuries, navigators have relied on 57 stars in the night sky, together with the North Star, to fix their location and to chart a course forward as they explored the seven continents.  This system of celestial navigation, and its complexity, exemplifies a nuanced global perspective, and a rigor in developing analytical systems to manage risk and discover opportunity.

The name ’57 Stars’ symbolizes our firm’s global and analytical approach to investing in markets throughout the world, many of which have been overlooked or are underserved.
