Behind the Santangel’s Name
Luis de Santangel was the treasurer to the royal court of Spain in 1491, when Ferdinand and Isabella refused once again to finance the voyage of Christopher Columbus. Dejected, the then-unknown sailor was on his way to petition the King of France when a rider intercepted him with a message: Santangel had convinced the Spanish monarchs to change their minds. Santangel’s quiet role in what became one of history’s greatest investments is the inspiration for our name.
