Courant Investment Partners
My name is Claude Leveille. I was born and raised in Montreal Canada, but have lived in the US for over 20 years. I worked for a technology company in CA called @Home Network. Since then I have been a private investor. I am now in the process of starting a value investment fund called Courant Capital. I will have offices in Austin TX, SF and Montreal. The investment philosophy of the fund is making long term investments in solid companies with very defensible market positions.
The target audience will be wealthy private individuals in CA who made their fortunes in building technology companies. Furthermore, I will be raising funds from institutional investors in Canada. Eventually I will also raise funds from institutions in the US as well. In both cases the target audience will be looking for a serious company to entrusts funds to. I want to project an image of conservativeness, seriousness, and integrity.
I need a logo that captures what the investment fund is about. I picked the name Courant because it has the following connotations ...
- It means informed, knowledgeable
- It is the same in French and English
- The New England Courant newspaper was where Benjamin Franklin first worked
- Ben Franklin is grandfather of the idea of compounding interest, the core value behind the fund
