The RIO Club “a Private Investment Club”

The Real Investment Opportunities Club (The RIO Club) is a private Investment Club founded in February 1995. With a current membership of 1187 members who are based in 20 countries worldwide. The Club has become the largest private investment Club in Asia this by considered by many to be quite an achievement since our membership has grown through recommendation only. Over the past eight years assets under management have increased dramatically with further investment as has money under management.

RIO’s constant increase in membership and money under management has produced substantial benefits for the members, for example the recently reduced charging structure available within RIO Professional Investment Fund, currently unbeatable in the offshore market today.

The Club also has a dedicated Fund manager who was among the first in the world to have accurately predicted the financial crisis of 2008 which is still affecting markets today. Importantly as part of the RIO group of companies we offer a dedicated Fund administration service from our offices which provides an online statement facility supported by independent fund specific websites. This enables a club member to check up on their investments from any internet enabled device
