The Möbius strip or Möbius band (alternatively written Mobius or Moebius in English; or Mobeus as we spell it) is a clever mathematical shape discovered independently by the German mathematicians August Ferdinand Möbius and Johann Benedict Listing in 1858.
The amazing thing about a Mobeus strip is that it has only one surface and one edge. If you move around a Mobeus strip, you'll find you end up at the same point that you started from without going over an edge.
The Mobeus strip represents the innovative way in which we try to approach investment opportunities, as well as the fundamental continuity of our business - the long standing stability of our team and its consistent focus on the SME market segment.
