The 'shield' represents the Ancient Greek concept of protection. In Greek Mythology the Aegis shield was associated with Zeus and Athena. The modern interpretation of "doing something under someone's aegis" means doing something under the protection of a powerful, knowledgeable and benevolent source. This modern interpretation fits with the brand ethos of Aegis Limited being a trustworthy company entrusted to deliver unbeatable investment administration and custodial services to its clients.
