Proudly named after the micro-animal 'Tardigrade' for its resilience and ability to survive extreme conditions that would normally be fatal to other life forms on Earth, Tartigrade Ltd. embodies this spirit in our company motto. We design investment strategies not only to thrive under normal conditions but to excel in extreme market conditions. While exploring the etymology of 'tardigrade', we found concern with the prefix 'tardi', meaning "late" or "slow" in Italian. To honor the creature's resilience without the connotation of slowness, we chose Tar"t"igrade Ltd., preserving its original meaning while highlighting our agility and strength.
