Financial Standards®' biccherne: symbol of financial integrity

Our logo harkens back to Sienna in the 13th century when this Italian city was a major European money center. Sienna's Office of the Biccherna provided semi-annual reports on government revenues and expenses. As a precursor to modern democracy, these financial reports demonstrated accountability to the people and their authority.

The Office of the Biccherna established the custom of commissioning prominent artists to paint the wooden covers of these semi-annual reports. Noblemen charged with monitoring Sienna's finances added their family shields to these works of art (known as "biccherne"), thus associating the reports with the honor and integrity of each one's family.

At Financial Standards® our own biccherne symbolizes the same high standards of honesty and integrity in financial reporting.
