Ancient Parable of the Five Talents

The name “FiveT” originates from the ancient parable of the Five Talents. 
In ancient times a master sets out to travel and puts his servants in charge of his goods for the time he is away. The significant wealth the servants were entrusted with were five talents for the most skilled one, three talents for the second servant and one talent for the least skilled third servant. While the first two servants decide to put what they were entrusted with at work and obtained a profit from their activities, the third servant - afraid of losing the talent he received - buried it to keep it safe and handed it back to his master upon his return. Finally, the two servants making profit were rewarded by the master, the third one got punished. 
Countless papers and dissertations have been written on the meaning and the moral of the parable. To us it was striking that thousands of years ago people understood that taking calculated risks and invest the funds you have is the right thing to do. Selecting the right service providers to do the investments while you can’t do it yourself is critical. It inspired the launch of FiveT to contribute to the greater good by doing what your best at.
