Origin of Swiftsure
SWIFTSURE is a name with a rich heritage in maritime history. More recently, it was a class of nuclear submarine (HMS S126) in the British Navy. As one of our founders was a prior submarine officer, it was this use of Swiftsure that led us to select it as our Company’s name.
The first Swiftsure was a 360 tonne, 41-gun galleon launched in 1573. The name Swiftsure was an Elizabethan word which means 'swift pursuer'.
We believe the name reflects the broad experience of our founders together with an ethos of relentlessly seeking out the best investment opportunities with exceptional professionalism, initiative and tenacity.
