About The Ton

About The Ton

The phrase le bon ton means "good form", a requirement of members of a select 18th-century British elite, an elite who made Georgian Great Britain the epicentre of exploration, innovation and unprecedented economic growth.
 
This elite was known as The Ton.
 
The Ton were the Empire's top 1,000 individuals, an exclusive community who socialised together, invested together, and together made the far-reaching decisions that shaped the globe then and now.
 
The Ton's exceptional success was due to their 'good form', their exclusivity, and their relationships - their integrity, trust and connection - which allowed for the most efficient and effective investment.
 
We have found over many years the new global Ton works as well as the old.
 
We have been marketing to Family Offices for over 25 years. We founded the largest Family Office investment event in Europe. We know which people have proven themselves as trusted investors, and they know us.

"The environment Seig creates with investors through the events makes it easy to do business." - Rahul Mehta, Family Director, Parker Lloyd Group
 
The Ton events gather a select and relevant group of trusted investors, chosen for their commitment and proven track record, with the aim of achieving an increased level of opportunity, cooperation, and connection.
 
Carefully curated speakers from the finance, media, and technological worlds present potential innovative investments. Presentations include authentic fresh ideas and are not product presentations or specific pitches. Presentations cover a variety of interesting uncorrelated investment topics such as biotechnology, agriculture, mining, finance, venture capital, digital media, green projects, cyber security, energy and resource development.
 
Previous Ton events have also included focused Racing, Classic Car, Shooting, Watch, Gemstone, and Wine Ton events.
 
Our aim is to educate and enlighten.
