Gianno & Freda Compass Logo
The symbol used in the Gianno and Freda Financial Center’s logo is The Moral Compass. A moral compass is anything which serves to guide a person’s decisions based on morals or virtues. A useful way to consider your moral compass is to picture it like an ordinary compass.  True North represents Integrity, South is Forgiveness, East is Compassion, and West is Responsibility. Historically, these four principles are universally honored in some form by all people, regardless of race, religion, or gender. Here at Gianno & Freda, we apply these principles to all of our dealings with our clients, our co-workers, and our work with other professionals.
