OV Capital was founded in August of 2008, when the founding partners felt that their previous firm was doing too little to proactively address the anticipated financial turmoil. It was agreed that the passive approach being advocated left clients too exposed to market declines. Instead they sought to create a firm which approached market risk as a variable that can change over time, instead of as a constant.
The result was the establishment of Omnia Vincet Capital Management, taken from the Latin meaning “overcome all”. This captured the essence of our Investing Philosophy; by managing investment risks, we positively impact returns, and provide value to our clients.
Over time, the name “OV Capital” became the natural short-hand for Omnia Vincet Capital Management, which can be a mouthful even for Latin speakers. Eventually, we adopted “OV Capital” as our official brand.
In 2012, we moved our headquarters from Tyson’s Corner to Alexandria, Virginia. We are currently located at 600 Cameron Street, in the heart of Old Town. We invite you to learn more about OV Capital by looking through our website, take advantage of the free tools and schedule an appointment to see how we can help your portfolio “overcome all.“
