About the name: Palio.
The name Palio Partners was inspired by Clark’s travels to Italy, specifically Siena where twice a year, the Palio horse race is held in the Piazza del Campo. The historic race features 10 horses and jockeys each representing one of the 17 contrada, or city zones, furiously racing around the circular piazza, bareback on a surface of red bricks covered in loose dirt. It’s 90 seconds of breathless excitement and winning the Palio involves a great deal of luck, will, skill, faith and courage.
Palio Partners’ logo is inspired by the Drago contrada, which has traditionally been the residential zone of the bankers. Drago won the “Palio of Peace” competition in 1945, a race that was run to celebrate the end of World War II.
