New clients and even some of my older ones often ask why I chose the name SOLIDUS back in 2009. There was method in my madness…let me explain!
There were three reasons…
The ‘SOLIDUS’ was a stable gold currency for a thousand years. It was the currency of the late Roman/Byzantine Empire. It was accepted across Europe and far into Asia. Because I deal with ‘gold’ (Investments) I thought it would represent not only the fact that I am a wealth manager for my clients but I am stable (in financial services since 1982) just like the SOLIDUS was.
It was a Byzantine or late Roman coin. This reflects my interest in that period of history perhaps better described as either an obsession or a fascination! This proves often to be an interesting talking point with clients who are also interested in history.
This particular SOLIDUS from the early 700s was the first ever coin with Jesus depicted on it. So I thought it would also represent the fact that I am a Christian and active in church related work in the UK and overseas. It is interesting hearing how people pronounce it but each syllable should be pronounced evenly. The name SOLIDUS represents my individual business and the staff and connections that I have. I am of course a founder partner of Sandringham financial partners of which SOLIDUS is my ‘trading style’ within that prestigious organisation.
