Being in a group of like-minded individuals is very beneficial. Clubs and other groups offer their members an opportunity to make friends; access to information; a social outlet; motivation for achieving a particular goal; access to organized events; and access to a network of associates.
The Oxford Club’s purpose is to advance these benefits and more to its members. This club, however, concentrates on financial matters, and its members enjoy the advice in the form of published reading material, whose aim is to assist the members in making better investment decisions, thus making more wealth.
The club is independent and operated by experts who form part of its membership. With over 80,000 members in 100 countries, the club gives its members an opportunity to use carefully selected strategies for investing. If used, members can achieve wealth and preserve it for longer periods compared to non-members.
Just like any other club, the Oxford Club relies on several measures to ensure it meets its objectives. The first principle is to set a minimum set of qualifications for membership. This selective procedure raises the bar high enough to ensure that only a selected few become members of the group.
In addition, the club has a well laid out investment philosophy. Members are free to share their ideas across the club. This leads to participative and inclusive idea generation.
Investment professionals then screen these ideas before being included in the investment philosophy. This has stood the test of time in making the club a success.
The club’s roots are in Baltimore, Maryland. The club began as a passport club, but with an idea to transform it into a private financial club. Its founder had an interest in finding investment opportunities for himself.
He, however, realized that this was not possible through the formal process, and so he partnered personal associates to achieve this goal; thus, the club was born.
