The name Affirmed Capital Group was inspired by one of the greatest racehorses of our time – the Triple Crown winning Affirmed. Since Affirmed’s prestigious achievement in 1978, only one horse has matched this feat (American Pharaoh), breaking a thirty-seven year drought.
To guarantee his victory in the Belmont stakes race and thus the Triple Crown, Affirmed led and set a very slow pace, going head to head with rival horse Alydar. For much of the race Affirmed, and his jockey Cauthen, along with Alydar and jockey Jorge Velasquez, were neck and neck. Affirmed then seemed to tire, but just when it seemed like Alydar was going to claim victory with his nose in front at mid-stretch, at that pivotal moment Cauthen went to a left hand whip – a tactic he had never before used. Affirmed won the Triple Crown and cemented his name as one of the leading thoroughbred race horses in history, and will forever be regarded as a true hall of famer.
The drive and desire exemplified through Affirmed’s accomplishments are the characteristics that Affirmed Capital Group constantly strive toward. Edging out competitors and providing lasting partnerships are the central ideals upon which Affirmed Capital operates. Much like the legendary Triple Crown winner, our company is driven by success and excellence aimed at being the top investment firm in the industry, providing partners with the greatest opportunity for achievement.
Affirmed is Sire to a race horse named Trusted Partner, the winner of the Grade 1 One Thousand Guineas race in Ireland, accumulating a purse of over 1M€. Much like Affirmed Capital Group, the Affirmed racehorse provided his son with the necessary skills to succeed in a competitive driven sport. Equipping partners with tools for success is an integral part of how Affirmed Capital carries out its business ventures. The goal of Affirmed Capital Group is ultimately to form lasting partnerships where both parties enjoy prosperity and growth.
Affirmed grants potential partners the resources and guidance needed in order to succeed in a highly competitive market, where new challenges require new skillsets, and sometimes adaptations. Following in the footsteps of the Triple Crown winning horse, Affirmed Capital offers partners an opportunity to achieve, and ultimately the opportunity to be a trusted partner for future business.
