As the name suggests, Galilee refers to a northern territory in ancient Israel, where Jesus performed the miracle of walking on water in the Sea of Galilee and also multiplied the five loaves and two fishes to feed the multitudes in Capernaum, Upper Galilee. Jesus also conducted most of his ministry in Galilee, spreading the Gospel to the multitudes. Our Company is based upon the foundation of His goodness and grace, allowing us to deliver maximum long-term investment returns for our clients while helping the less fortunate around us.
