About Blackfinch

Our Growth Story

Whilst the business has been running for longer, the Blackfinch name and logo first came into being on the anniversary of the evolutionary biologist Charles Darwin’s birth, 12th February 2013. Since then, we have grown to become a group of companies with a shared vision of a better future.

We continue to grow by listening closely to how society and technology is changing. It's more important than ever that investors come together to make a positive impact on the world around us. We're adapting to the ever changing landscape, making sure we evolve our products and services to meet the needs of the partners and sectors we work with.

The Darwin Connection

In the 19th century, Charles Darwin was exploring in the Galapagos Islands. His curiosity was drawn to the finches after noticing they had different sized and shaped beaks, depending on where they lived. His research found they had adapted to different food sources in order to thrive, making them one of the most highly evolved species on the island.

This discovery was the inspiration behind Blackfinch. The valuable behaviours of adapting and evolving in order to thrive have been the driving force of the leadership for more than 25 years.
