The Brand Story
An illustrated form of an elephant and its Mahout was chosen by Jaipur Asset Management to represent the firm as together they are synonymous with India and a symbol of India that is recognised worldwide. For both the co-founders, Jaipur has family significance.
Elephants are respected widely for their unique characteristics. Known to be highly intelligent, self-aware and patient, elephants can move rapidly and once on the move are near impossible to stop. According to Indian mythology, Ganesh the elephant-headed god is the remover of obstacles, made easy, if needed, by an elephant’s sheer size and strength.
The Mahouts are the elephants’ caretakers, who train and guide them. A Mahout will look after their elephant for its lifetime. Together, they are a great partnership.
It is this true partnership of the elephants and the Mahouts that JAM reflected on when selecting the logo.
