Galileo Capital is founded

Galileo Capital was started in 2005 by Theo Vorster and Warren Ingram. They had a clear vision to create a financial planning business that was focussed on selling advice to investors rather than using advice to push products. The purpose of Galileo Capital was to be an independent and objective source of information  and advice to private individuals.
