About 25 years ago, my business partner and I started a private investment club for Americans who were interested in increasing and protecting their wealth by banding together and hiring dedicated experts to advise them on all sorts of international investment options.
From day one, the club was successful. But when it was taken over by Julia Guth and Agora Inc. in 1987, things started improving quickly. Julia expanded the services offered, developed new publications and products, and hired new and better investment advisors. Within five years, it was the largest and most successful investment club of its kind.
Today, the Oxford Club has more than 50,000 active members on every continent and in almost every country. The Oxford Club has offices in Baltimore and affiliates in London, Paris, Bonn, and many other international destinations.
It is a very profitable business. More importantly, it’s a business that is working very well for everyone – its shareholders, its employees, and its members.
Except for a brief period, I’ve had the pleasure of working with the Oxford Club throughout those 25 years. During that time, I’ve personally witnessed the quality of their goods and services. Still, it’s always heartwarming to read a letter like the following:
“I thought this story would be of interest to you.
“I received a phone call today from a client of mine who I last saw in 1976. He is now 85 years old. He was (and still is) an automobile dealer in the State of Mississippi and has some interests in motels, automobile dealerships, and oil and gas.
“In 1976, when we became friends, he was worth about $10 million. Today, he has a personal net worth of more than $500 million.
“He called yesterday and said the reason he called was because he had discovered that I was affiliated with the Oxford Club. I told him that I was and had been so since the early 1980s.
“He said that three years ago a friend had given him a membership in the Oxford Club as a present. He wanted to tell me that the Club’s investment recommendations had made him ‘millions.’ He said he thanked God that he received the membership with the Oxford Club, and he wanted to tell me that he thought it was great that my name was affiliated with the Club.
“I thought you would like to hear this wonderful story, because testaments like this make me feel good that I’m affiliated with the organization, an organization that does a lot of good for mankind, young, middle-aged, and old.
“‘Excellence and compassion’ should be the Oxford Club’s motto. Credit goes to the creative people who have devoted their time and intelligence to making it so good.
Quite the testimonial, isn’t it?
