In establishing an Asia-based organization with global distribution reach, the name of Diamond Dragon Advisors was carefully selected because it’s synonymous with two strong elements reflective of both Asian culture and the characteristics that embodies our firm and how we conduct ourselves in our interactions with the private equity industry.

The Diamond

The Chinese used diamonds to cut Jade, another precious Asian stone; and its emperors used diamonds as symbols of their wisdom and power.

The Diamond is considered to hold a strong protective field around its wearer, thereby keeping away negative influences. It is believed that the Diamond helps to bring balance and support to the soul and offer new and exciting opportunities.

The Dragon

Chinese people around the world often proclaim themselves “龙的传人” or Descendants of the Dragon. Emperors in many Asian countries claimed to have Dragon ancestors and Dragons are considered to be so wise that they have been cherished royal advisors. Dragons are referred to as the divine mythical creature that brings with it ultimate abundance, prosperity and good fortune.

The Dragon symbolizes power and excellence, valiancy and boldness, heroism and perseverance, nobility and divinity. The Dragon overcomes obstacles until success is his. He is energetic, decisive, optimistic, intelligent and ambitious. The Dragon is the ultimate representation of the forces of Mother Nature.
