The Genesis of Chequers
Making wealth endure. It's what inspires us and is at the core of everything we do. To capture this in our name, we thoughtfully selected "Chequers" for its rich history, symbolism and what we wish for our financial partners: substantial wealth.
Built by the Chancellor of the Exchequer in the 13th century, the Chequers Estate in England passed from generation to generation for over 700 years due in large part to well-designed family wealth transfer.
At the beginning of the 20th century, the estate was donated to the Crown by the Lord and Lady of Fareham to fulfill their vision for a more equitable political and social system—one where self-made men could rise in society without aristocratic birthright or privilege and become future leaders of the country through hard work.
The Chequers name represents the intersection of dynastic family wealth planning and self-made men—a story of how thoughtful financial choices set a framework for wealth to endure over generations.
Imagine if we can do that for you? Let's help make your wealth endure.
