Thank you all for your efforts to date. Your names have inspired us to update our brief to make it clearer for you.
Industry: Asset Management
Words we need to communicate in our brand: discipline, growth, protection (secure), innovative and forward thinking...we make the connections others are yet to see
Our major principle is “building wealth and security for our investors; protecting wealth and lifestyle for our residents” (this is our difference...we care about both sides of our investment)...we would like to present 2 sides of the chalice..

In line with Al Ries, Jack Sprout branding philosophy...

“In the positioning era, the single most important marketing decision you can make is what to name the product. A lazy say-nothing name isn’t good enough to cut into the mind. What you must look for is a name that begins the positioning process, a name that tells the prospect what the product’s major benefit is.”

We need a name you can build a story from eg. Invest Well. It has an ordinary meaning and the term 'well' allows one us to tell a story. The community well, a place to tell stories and bring people together. A place which inspires and enriches peoples lives. Invest is not correct however if we had a symbolic place which we could refer to (not Chalice Well) it would be good.

have a number of really good names but nothing that jumps out as 'the one'. Prefer real words to derivatives of names. Keep going please..

You have all inspired great progress. We would like to have a name that combines our previous briefs and something that means 'grow together'. A name that recognises we are stronger for the benefit of doing this together for eg. Two bones grow stronger together than they do by themselves. A name like unite is too simple but we would prefer real words than derivatives or part words...good luck!! Getting close now...logo next..

I like the name Keystone. We need something that adds to this name, something that represents two sides coming together at the centre. The strongest point of the arch way is the keystone. Secure, pivotal to the structure. We do not want Keystone Capital as too financial in nature. We want a name that appeals to corporates and represents protection of capital on one one side and protection of lifestyle on the other..good luck!!
