About Our Name

The name Winged Keel Group was inspired by the 1983 America's Cup yacht race. Dating back to 1851, the America's Cup is the oldest continuous competition in sport. The 1983 race marked the first time that the challenger had won the Cup since the contest began. The challenger’s key to victory was the development of a "winged keel." This structural development allowed the challenging yacht to move faster through the water due to the increased stability that a winged keel is designed to provide.

 

Sophisticated observers were able to "look beneath the surface" to recognize the significance and value of this innovation. Winged Keel Group believes that what is "beneath the surface" matters. We continuously invest resources in developing the infrastructure required to deliver the highest quality services to our clients. We invite clients and their professional advisors to look beneath the surface. We believe that the deeper they look, the more confident they will be in our ability to meet their highest expectations.
