“Sawbuck” is slang for the $10 bill which is made especially cool because Alexander Hamilton’s likeness is on it. We’re financial marketers that paid hommage to AH by adding the x from alex to the nickname of the currency he adorns to form our name.
Long before an entertaining and only mildly historically accurate play was costing people $800 per seat, the leaders at Sawbux loved the guy. He was, after all, the father of the American financial system, laying the cornerstone of an economic power unequaled in history. He came from nowhere to change the world and we think he was mostly brilliant…except for the whole “getting killed in a duel” thing. Now that’s being committed to the cause.
At Sawbux, we’re totally committed to our cause. No duels here…just deals.
