Our logo and motto

FinLantern’s logo is particularly close to the heart of the company’s founder, Riccardo Esposito, because it historically symbolises the town of Genoa (Northern Italy), where he was born. Traditionally, the lighthouse in Genoa was nicknamed ‘La Lanterna’; nowadays this moniker often references the town itself.

A lighthouse is a guiding light for vessels and seamen. Similarly, Financial Professionals at FinLantern aim to guide investors through the ‘uncertain waters’ of the financial markets.

FinLantern also organizes:
