Brand philosophy

Meaning behind everything we do

Scroll down to learn about the heart behind Sherman Portfolios and the meaning and thought behind each piece of our logo.

Three-sided Triangle

This represents the three persons of the Trinity – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. This is described at Jesus' baptism in Matthew 28:18-20:

"And Jesus came and said to them, 'All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.'"


This circle represents both Earth, and the rest of the universe, planets, and stars. We read this at the Creation of the World in Genesis 1:1:"In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth."


The three circles that surround the inner circle (Creation) represent the Triune Godhead. This points to our believe that our lives, efforts, skills, talents, and success is held together by Him. The basis for this is found in Colossians 1:16-17:

“For by Him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things were created through Him and for Him. And He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together.”


The arrow on the top right of the logo represents reaching “escape velocity”. This is the rate of travel needed to escape earth’s atmosphere into space. Christ is the center of our logo and the center of the Gospel message as seen in Hebrews 1:3:

"He is the radiance of the glory of God and the exact imprint of his nature, and he upholds the universe by the word of his power. After making purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high."


The outer portion of the line represents a rocket breaking out of the atmosphere in the same way that our clients can achieve breakouts with our strategies. The overall shape of the line mimics the stock market graph lines - breakthrough, up, and to the right.


The deeper meaning of the line breaking through is representative of Christ. The velocity needed to escape earth's atmosphere is 33 times the speed of sound.

This age (33) of Jesus when he became the final and only sacrifice for the sins of the world. His death, burial, and resurrection is the ultimate breakthrough and his triumph over death has secured salvation for anyone who calls on Him.

"If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes and is justified, and with the mouth one confesses and is saved. " — Romans 10:9-10

For those of you that want to believe in the death, burial, and resurrection as the gift of grace that saves you from sin, we'd love to pray with you and send you a Bible as you begin your Christian journey.
