## About the Name

1618 Investimentos name originates from the initial numbers of the golden ratio, 1.618.

Mathematically speaking, the golden ratio is a real algebraic constant obtained by dividing a line into two segments, so that the longest segment of the line divided by the smaller segment is equal to the complete line divided by the longest segment and its value consists of 1.6180339887, or roughly 1.618.

The Greek letter *Phi – * or φ – , chosen to represent the golden ratio originates with mathematician and architect Phidias who is believed to have used this concept when designing the Parthenon in 5 BCE.

Phidias was not the only ancient Greek scholar who became a fan of the golden ratio. Plato also liked Phi and Euclid was the first to describe it in his work “the elements” some two and a half thousand years ago. Much later, in the early 13th century, Italian Leonardo Fibonacci discovered unique properties in a sequence of numbers (1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89, 144, 233, 377, 610, 987, 1597, 2584, …)

Interestingly, the Fibonacci sequence is directly related to the golden ratio, since the ratio between any pair of successive numbers is very close to the golden ratio. As the numbers get higher, the ratio also moves closer and closer to 1.6180. as an example, the ratio between 3 and 5 is 1.666, between 13 and 21 is 1.625 and the ratio between 144 and 233 is 1.618.
