Seagate United States
Seagate Global Group was founded in Los Angeles in 1996 to use global financial markets to improve the human condition while investing in low risk/high return strategies.
Seagate Global started as an investment research and asset management firm. Brokerage, consulting, financing and wealth management were later added.
Seagate has proven its thesis that focusing on strategies that help people and improve the planet can actually increase investment returns, not decrease them.
Seagate Global Advisors LLC was founded in 1996 with The People’s Bank of China as its first client. Seagate assisted PBOC in managing its assets for over a decade.

Seagate expanded into South East Asia in 2008 and has been active in the region ever since.
