About our name...

The name Makwa derives from the Algonquinian Ojibwa North American people language /ma(k)kwa/ “bear”, (with the /x/to be pronounced like the “ch” of German <Bach> or in Scottish <loch>”lake”).

For Makwa founder David Vita, the name has personal associations as he was the founding director of the Massachusetts State representation office in Israel (Massachusetts Indians spoke Algonquin), moreover his strong analytical approach, can best be characterized as “bearish”.

While traditionally, “bears” are viewed as being somewhat pessimistic (expecting securities or markets to fall), the Makwa organization can better be viewed as an organization that is solid, cautious, and looks at all times to optimize growth to provide a maximization of the shareholders wealth.

“When a pine needle falls in the forest, the eagle sees it; the deer hears it, and the bear smells it.” – old First Nations saying.
